TFL’s advertising estate

13 June 2007  •  Author(s): Nigel Marson, Director of Marketing, Transport for London

Transport for London (TfL) is currently engaged in an ambitious programme to modernise and improve London’s vast transport system. By 2010 more than £10bn will be spent on refurbishing, modernising and in some cases extending the transport network. The vision of this programme is to not only provide a fast, efficient transport service for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games but also a lasting legacy. By 2016 London’s population is forecast to grow by 800,000 people, with 900,000 new jobs, the equivalent of a city the size of Leeds. Improvements to the transport system are essential in securing London’s long-term prosperity.

The honour of hosting the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games has been a powerful catalyst in driving forward the programme of improvements. In some cases, due to funding from the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), projects have been accelerated. This will bring improvements to the transport system significantly earlier than previously anticipated.
