If London’s population grows to meet current projections, there will be a lot of additional strain on London’s existing infrastructure – much of which is already heavily used and in places dates back to the Victorian era.
To support housing, improvements are needed in several infrastructure areas, notably include the Thames Tideway, power networks and telecommunications.
These are three of ten priority areas for action that London First has identified with its members that we believe must be delivered to ensure that London keeps pace with change and allows it to offer first class facilities to live, work and move around the city. Many are at red or amber. We need to make sure that the green light is given to all these projects as soon as possible. This is the only way London will maintain its world class city status.
