  • complete the upgrade of all the Tube lines

  • deliver the Overground extension to Barking Riverside on the Gospel Oak to Barking line

  • develop plans for additional tram, tube and rail services in areas currently under-served by public transport including:

    • extending the Bakerloo line south to Southwark and then into Lewisham and Bromley

    • extending the tram to Merton and Sutton
