People from all over the UK go through London on a regular basis for meetings, to go to airports, the Eurostar, concerts, museums and on holiday. An improved public transport system will benefit people far beyond the confines of the M25, and far beyond 2012. An effective transport system in the capital has a knock-on effect to localised transport systems, not just in terms of a physical improvement as different routes into London are improved and complemented with greater frequency services, but also in terms of encouraging councils to follow suit and get ready for a better infrastructure.
The meeting in Nottingham was the first of many presentations I will give across the UK, and I was delighted to meet with different councils from across the East Midlands who are so interested and engaged in getting ready for the summer of 2012.
