ACE RESPONDS TO THE MAYOR OF LONDON'S TRANSPORT STRATEGY

Dr Nelson Ogunshakin OBE comments ahead of publication of the London Plan

Responding to the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy, chief executive of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE), Dr Nelson Ogunshakin OBE, said:

"Successful infrastructure demands careful long-term planning, so Sadiq Khan should be commended for London’s responsible transport strategy which, for possibly the first time, looks beyond near-term Mayoral politics to offer a bold vision for the future of transport in the capital. We would urge the new Metro-Mayors, and groups like Transport for the North and Transport for Wales, to mirror the Mayor’s long-term approach to infrastructure planning.

"The Mayor, and his team led by his deputy for transport, Valerie Shawcross OBE, should also be praised for their holistic approach in engaging all stakeholders, including local communities across London, and in producing an integrated plan which firmly embeds transport as the key to building more homes, tackling our future environmental challenges and delivering healthy streets for Londoners."
