London’s Docklands has seen two periods of intensive development. The first being the construction of the working docks during a relatively short period at the start of the 19th Century and the second, during the last 40 years following the closure of the docks in the early 1970s. The second period has seen colossal regeneration, bringing major employment and housing to the area. This special talk by Jon Willis will illustrate these pioneering developments and
in particular, the role of the railways
in supporting them. Jon spent a large part of his career working on transport projects for London Docklands and his last position was Head of Planning for the Crossrail project.
