East London Line and Barclays Cycle Hire win top engineering awards



On 7 March, a TfL project to upgrade and extend the East London Line was awarded the top trophy at the ICE London Civil Engineering Awards 2011. The £700 million replacement and extension of the existing East London Line into a fast and modern metro service fully integrated with London’s Overground rail network was delivered ahead of schedule and represents a triumph of collaborative working.


Barclays Cycle Hire also received honours from the ICE. Since its launch in 2010, nearly three million journeys have been made using Barclays Cycle Hire scheme. Overcoming the challenges associated with London’s unique built environment and land ownership involved Transport for London working in close partnership with nine different local authorities, The Royal Parks and private landowners to secure the best sites for the scheme’s 350 docking stations, without compromising the needs of other road or public space users.

The New Bus for London at the Transport Museum



A life-size 3D mock-up of the vehicle has gone on display at the London Transport Museum, Covent Garden. It will be on show for three months to give the public a chance to get a close-up look at the exterior design, and to see part of the interior through the lower deck windows.


The mock-up is inspired by the famous red Routemaster bus and has an open rear platform, two interior staircases and will be equipped with the latest green technology. Transport for London has been working with Wrightbus and Heatherwick Studio on the design and development of the new bus. The mock-up will be used to fine-tune the design before a prototype is manufactured later this year. The first five new buses will enter service in 2012.


Transport for London assumes responsibility from Olympic Delivery Authority for delivery of key London 2012 transport programmes


On 9 February, Transport for London confirmed that it had assumed responsibility for the London 2012 Games Travel Demand Management (TDM), Olympic and Paralympic Route networks and Road Freight Management (RFM) programmes in London.


The Games are now less than 18 months away and the focus of all London 2012 partners is now moving from the planning phase to one of implementation and operational delivery. As the lead authority on transport operations in the Capital during the London 2012 Games, TfL is already responsible for the delivery and management of a number of key programmes, including the Transport Co-ordination Centre, which will ensure co-ordination and communication between all transport operators, authorities and London 2012 partners during Games-time.


The transfer of these programmes to TfL will further enhance the integration and operational management of all London 2012 transport, ensuring athletes, officials and spectators can get to their events on time, and London and the UK can keep moving.


London to lead the world as plans unveiled for travel across the Capital with just a swipe of a contactless bank card


On 24 February, Transport for London announced that next year it will become the first city in the world where passengers will be able to access an entire transport network with just a swipe of their contactless bank or credit card.


By the end of 2012, card readers across the whole of the TfL network will have been upgraded so that a touch of a contactless bank or credit card will allow passengers to touch in and out for pay as you go travel on the bus, Tube, DLR, Tram and London Overground network. The new system will be up and running on all of London's 8,000 buses in time for the 2012 Games, enabling quick and easy bus travel for the millions of visitors who will flock to the capital to enjoy the greatest show on earth.


Barclays Cycle Hire wins Transport Category of Brit Insurance Designs of the Year Awards 2011


On 28 February, Transport for London announced that Barclays Cycle Hire had won the Transport Category of the prestigious Brit Insurance Design Awards that showcase the most innovative and forward thinking designs from around the world. The bikes fought off competition from the likes of Fiat 500 Twinair, Yikebike New Zealand and Riversimple UK to win the transport category. The overall winner of the awards will be announced on Tuesday 15 March.


Barclays Cycle Hire is continuing to be a phenomenal success in London. Since the launch of the scheme just eight months ago, customers have made over 2.8 million journeys around the Capital. Londoners and visitors to the Capital have praised the bikes for their convenience, ease of use and value for money, and now they are able to claim admiration for their style as well.


Oyster pay as you go confirmed as ticket of choice for millions of National Rail commuters in London


On 8 February, Transport for London announced that more than two million journeys are now being made each week using Oyster pay as you go on National Rail services in Greater London.


Considering the journey levels were around 600,000 when it was first extended to all 350 National Rail stations in January 2010, this tremendous increase clearly demonstrates the fantastic success that Oyster has become.


The roll out doubled the number of stations where Oyster pay as you go was accepted, allowing it to be used on all National Rail, Tube, DLR, London Overground, London Buses, Tramlink services and Thames Clipper river services. In the last 13 months, Oyster pay as you go customers have made over 80 million journeys on rail services.
