As anyone looking to properly understand London’s transport needs and network knows, context, background and best-practice are important. As readers might imagine, behind the scenes here at LR Towers we thus spend a lot of time sharing links and reading around the subjects we cover here.

We also occasionally share links containing good information about transport topics that we know we just don’t have time to cover. We also all, as authors, occasionally write elsewhere on this or tangentially related subjects.

If you’ve got something you feel we should read or include in a future list, don’t forget to email us at [email protected].

    The “Improving urban mobility…” link isn’t working.

    [Fixed. Cheers. LBM]

    The point has been made, on earlier editions of this list, that some people do not appreciate it, and would prefer original LR articles. This has been countered by others stating that they appreciate the reading list, and pointing out that no-one is obliged to read something which they do not like.

    No more general comments along the same lines will be allowed to remain, even if politely expressed (which has not always been the case hitherto). Any observations on this ruling should be made by eMail to [email protected]

    Somewhat off topic,but reading the grizzly bears article attracted sidebar adverts for property in Toronto, reporting that the average price for “average property” there had now passed the CAD 1m mark. Comparisons with London would be simply invidious…

  4. @Graham H

    Whilst $1m CAD seems a lot, it is only about £500,000, give or take. Although our houses are, on average, larger, and with much better insulation.

  5. Malcolm says:

    Give or take: I’ll take the odd £112,750 difference please? The GBP has taken a bit of a hammering from certain recent events…

  6. Southern Heights (Light Railway) says:

    @LBM: Insulation? What’s that? 😉

  7. Graham H says:

    @LBM -bears not included presumably?

  8. Greg Tingey says:

    An alternative suggestion:
    That the “Industry News & Releases” section have a date/time stamp attached ( as in the “Most Active Articles” list.
    Then, readers can see how recent they are.
    Please?

    If people want some extra exciting reading matter then there is a plethora of new papers for next week’s Programmes and Investment Cttee meeting (see 8 March 2017).

    https://tfl.gov.uk/corporate/publications-and-reports/programmes-and-investment-committee

    Various juicy bits of info across a range of topics. As I have separately alerted JB and PoP I won’t go into detail as I don’t know what they may choose to write about.

  10. Briantist (Haisen-tetsu) says:

    @WW

    “4.11 [DLR] … extension to Thamesmead as set out in Appendix 3.

    Appendix 3: Further future including extensions: Barking Town, Barking-Thamesmead service (Objective: North Beckton new town centre) , Extend Thamesmead to Abbey Wood (Objective: Thamesmead housing intensification)

    Probability before 2030 … Low”
