Keeping London at the forefront of global business
working with and for the whole UK
Delivering the DLR extension and Thamesmead Regeneration
15 September 2021
Sustaining TfL’s operations has dominated discussions around funding for London’s transport network, but delivering new transport projects will be critical for the capital’s future. Post-covid, case-making for transport projects will need to centre on placemaking opportunities and Mayor Sadiq Khan stated in his manifesto that he would prioritise delivering the DLR extension to Thamesmead, which has the potential to help promote tens of thousands of new homes for Londoners and transform Thamesmead in the London Borough of Bexley into a thriving new quarter of London. While progress is being made on feasibility work for the proposed DLR extension, there is more work to do about how it will be funded. This session will bring together the key public and private sector stakeholders to set out the vision for the Thamesmead.
