"A new high-speed 'rail bagel' encircling London will become a priority for the capital as its population soars to 10m over the next 20 years, Boris Johnson’s transport adviser has said.

"Isabel Dedring, deputy mayor for transport at City Hall, said new light-rail and tram services – now under discussion for some outer areas – would be 'only an intermediate measure' and the extra capacity would be soaked up by new arrivals.

"... Ms Dedring is helping to prepare a long-term infrastructure plan for the capital, due for publication in Spring 2014; it is expected to tackle rail and airport capacity, as well as roads."
