Preview

This chapter aims to provide an account of recent developments in transport policy in London, England. It examines the relevance of these developments to other regions and evaluates the extent to which further change is desirable within London itself. The chapter suggests that recent experience in London clearly offers examples of where the devolution of power to the Greater London Assembly and the Mayor has enabled radical changes to occur on a scale not seen elsewhere in Great Britain.
