"I am delighted to support these awards, which showcase the work of transport authorities, operators, suppliers and contractors, and all their people in ensuring that London remains a world leading city.

The Capital's population is at record levels - 8.6 million today, which will become 10 million by 2030: the definition of a mega city.

In just four years, the number of passengers we serve has increased by nearly half a billion a year. Our population is growing at the rate of two full Tube trains a week or two full buses a day.

In response, significant investment is being made to modernise the transport network. The Victoria line is now one of the most frequent metro services in the world, we have new air-conditioned trains on four lines, Crossrail 1 is on time and on budget. In addition, we are spending £4bn on improving our roads.

Much has been done but there is still more to do. We very much welcome the Chancellor's commitment for £10bn of capital investment in transport. The majority of the cost of Crossrail 2 will be borne by London but we still need some contribution from Central Government if it is going to be ready to get the South East to work in 2030, free up the bottleneck at Waterloo and support 200,000 new jobs and the same number of new homes. This, and sustained funding for our day-to-day operations, are vital if the city is to continue to thrive."
