It’s expected that it will take 18 months to complete this update and cost $500,000.

I’m most interested in the recommendation “that a “London Transportation Master Plan Project Steering Committee” (The Steering Team) BE ESTABLISHED, comprised of representatives from the City of London Civic Administration and the London Transit Commission Administration.”

Who will represent London’s pedestrian and bicycling demographics? And where do they fit into this picture?
