Our engineers focus on the equipment, infrastructure and technology that form the foundation of our transport system. London never stops and the engineering challenge which we face in modernising and upgrading our systems has been likened to undertaking open heart surgery on a patient while they are running a marathon! Our network plays a massive role in ensuring London can become a Net Zero Carbon city and as Engineers we help shape the decisions that will lead to this carbon reduction. Civil Engineering touches everything that we do and is essential for creating new possibilities and propelling us into the future.
