THE BRENT CROSS RAILWAY (thought we'd mention that). 'Infrastructure Intelligence': "Planning for growth - interview with Michele Dix of TfL"

"London is preparing for massive population growth. Transport for London’s managing director of planning Michèle Dix is masterminding efforts to ensure transport infrastructure can cope with 11M people by 2050"

"The numbers are scary. London is currently home to around 8.3M people who rely on the capital’s rail, underground and road networks to make some 27M journeys a day.

"This population is predicted to grow to over 10M in the next 15 years and then to over 11M by 2050, a massive 37% increase as London continues to drive the UK’s economic fortunes.

"With this growth comes huge pressure on the capital’s transport networks, the vital arteries that enable the capital to function as an effective business centre and focus for culture and leisure and tourism."

"Michèle Dix is the Managing Director of Planning at Transport for London (TfL). Michèle started her career at the Greater London Council (GLC) after completing her PhD in transport and land use planning and became a chartered civil engineer through the GLC’s transport planning graduate scheme.

"After 6 years of policy work, Michele joined Halcrow Fox in the private sector, where she became the Board Director of Urban Transport Planning. After 15 years working on a range of studies Michèle joined TfL as Director of Congestion Charging; implementing, running and expanding the scheme with co-Director Malcolm Murray-Clark. She was also responsible for developing the Low Emission Zone.

"Since, June 2007, Michele has been the Managing Director of Planning and leads TfL’s strategic thinking on the future transport needs of London, testing and challenging policies and providing clear direction on appropriate transport solutions for the future.

"Current studies include air quality, and growth health, accessibility/policies and major schemes such as the Northern Line Extension, Crossrail 2, New River Crossing and Tramslinks and leading on the TfL’s aviation work for the Mayor. She is responsible for the TfL’s work on ensuring that it is integrated within London."
