Sadiq Khan's new TfL board's first meeting: hopping, inclusive and refreshed
The Labour mayor’s choice of board members for his transport agency and his attitude towards its senior officers demonstrate the new approaches he requires
The first meeting of Sadiq Khan’s new Transport for London (TfL) board took place on Thursday, characterised by much newbie enthusiasm, an upbeat vibe and a few jokes from the Mayor in the Chair, determined to set a new tone to match the new approach he requires. The board’s job is approve TfL’s business planning and accounts and “other major and strategic issues and policies” and to see that the organisation’s top brass are doing their jobs. This means, among other things, asking intelligent questions at board meetings, which are held in public. The following are a few of the more diverting matters that were discussed.
