About the Awards

The London Transport Awards 2014 will be held at the Park Plaza Riverbank London on 6th March 2014.

Sir Peter Hendy CBE

Keynote Speaker

  

“All of us who work in the transport industry can be proud of our role in keeping London working, growing and making life here better.

“Despite a tough Spending Round earlier this year, we are continuing to improve service provision and plan for the future of a city that is the economic engine of the entire country. The benefits of this across the nation and to our UK wide supply chain are central in supporting the country’s economic recovery.

“With London’s population expected to grow from 8.4 million today to 9 million in 2018 and around 10 million in the 2030s, our services will need to keep pace if the Capital’s global success and growth are to continue. We will need to build on our track records, often celebrated through these awards, of successfully delivering major infrastructure projects and advances in technology.

“We are transforming the Tube, including plans to run 24 hours at weekends from 2015, completing Crossrail and enhancing our bus, Overground, Docklands Light Railway and tram services. We will continue to build safe and attractive cycling infrastructure, improve our high streets and neighbourhoods and tackle air quality. We are looking ahead to future infrastructure with Crossrail 2, new Tube extensions and an unprecedented investment in our road network.

“We will continue to show our customers that every journey matters through introducing contactless payment on our rail services and much better real-time transport information, especially while customers and users are ‘on the move’.

“I am delighted, as always, to support these awards, which recognise all that our industry does everyday to deliver for London and the UK, and congratulate those organisations and individuals nominated for their achievements over the last year.”
