ABOUT THE AWARDS

VIEW SHORTLIST

The awards are supported by Transport for London, London Councils, London Travel Watch and London First and recognise excellence in transport and reward innovation and progress for transport initiatives which are really working in London.

"The London Transport Awards are pivotal in recognising the talent, energy and drive that our city's transport professionals devote to delivering millions of safe journeys every day.

This is a huge challenge to meet - the Capital is growing at a phenomenal rate. Record numbers of customers and users rely on our public transport and road networks to get around the city every day. Everyone working in transport – whether planning the services, building the routes, repairing the trains or pulling together the customer information – has a role to play in ensuring London thrives.

The London Transport Awards recognise and celebrate these efforts, right across the Capital.'

Mike Brown MVO
Comissioner
Transport for London

As Commissioner, Mike Brown MVO is responsible for making sure TfL provides world-class transport services that keep London working, growing and make life in the Capital better. He oversees TfL's investment programme, which includes some of the largest and most complex engineering projects in Europe.

TfL manages virtually all of the city's transport, including London Underground, the bus network, Docklands Light Railway, TfL Rail, London Overground, London Trams and the Emirates Air Line cable car. It is also responsible for the Capital's busiest main roads, the Congestion Charging scheme, road safety and schemes to boost cycling and walking.

Mike joined London Underground in 1989 and worked in various operational manager roles before becoming the company's Chief Operating Officer in 2003. In 2008, he left to head up Heathrow, then the world's busiest international airport.

He rejoined London Underground in 2010 as Managing Director leading major programmes that have resulted in huge improvements to Tube, helping to make services more frequent and reliable than ever before. He also played a major role in the successful delivery of transport for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

HOST


Cathy Newman

Cathy Newman
News Presenter

Cathy Newman is one of Channel 4 News' main studio presenters and was the first woman to co-host the programme. She joined Channel 4 News as political correspondent and she continues to write on Westminster for the Daily Telegraph. She also heads Channel 4's FactCheck blog which aims to present the un-spun truth behind the political headlines.

As well as the main news programme, Cathy has also fronted Channel 4 documentaries on faith schools and police investigations. She co-presented the broadcaster's Alternative Election Night with Jeremy Paxman in 2015, and contributed to the 2010 coverage as well. With Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Cathy also took an alternative look at the government's cuts programme in How to Save £100bn.

Since joining Channel 4 News, Cathy has broken a number of big political stories including the arrest of David Cameron's trusted aide Steve Hilton, the revelation that the Home Office were employing illegal immigrants, and Gordon Brown's insistence that Labour donor Ronald Cohen receive a knighthood. Cathy's confrontation with Peter Mandelson over his stand-off with newspaper bosses became a surprise YouTube hit, whilst her stewardship of the Orwell Prize- nominated FactCheck Blog has uncovered the truth behind everything from budgets and spending reviews to crime figures and politician's overuse of certain words.

Prior to Channel 4, Cathy hosted GMTV's The Sunday Programme, and served as the Financial Times' chief political correspondent after a period covering politics and the media for the business daily. Before the FT she worked as media business correspondent at the Independent, and away from more serious issues has appeared on Have I Got News For You.
