Friday Reading List: 18 November 2016


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.

Many of these links we share on the London Reconnections Twitter account, but we recently realised it would perhaps be useful if we shared these to readers here as well, for the benefit of those who do not follow us there.

So this will hopefully be the first of a regular series of posts featuring a curated list of what we have been reading throughout the week. These may be directly related to transport in London in particular, or simply to the wider topics that influence our understanding of London, how transport works (locally, globally or historically) and how people travel.

Similarly, a reminder that if readers encounter things they feel we might be interested in reading we would love to receive them. Simply send a link (and any context you feel useful) to [email protected].
