TfL's City Planning Director talks tubes, bus mobility and greening taxis


We are delighted to welcome TfL's Director of City Planning, Alex Williams, to our March forum in London to talk about the much anticipated extensions to tube lines, new buss on-demand mobility and reducing taxi emissions.

Alex's responsibilities include working with the Mayor to develop and deliver his Transport Strategy for London, and developing and gaining powers for major infrastructure projects such as tube extensions and new river crossings. He provides transport advice on Land Use Planning applications referable to the Mayor and manages relationship with London Boroughs. Across all of these it is Alex's role to ensure TfL's planning work is underpinned by a robust evidence base through modelling and analysis.

Alex was formally appointed to the post in April 2017 having held it on an interim basis since April 2016. Before that he was Director of Borough Planning (from 2007). Prior to TfL he worked in LB Camden and LB Ealing
