About Isabel:

Isabel is the Global Transport Leader at Arup where she is responsible for driving the development of the firm’s business across the transport sector. Isabel joined Arup in March 2016 from London's City Hall, where she was Deputy Mayor for Transport and Deputy Chair of Transport for London.

In this capacity she was responsible for setting policy and ensuring delivery across the Mayor’s transport portfolio. Key projects she initiated and delivered included the Tube Reliability Programme which led to a 40% reduction in Tube delays; the £300m Growth Fund to fund transport infrastructure to unlock new house building; the Mayor’s new £1b cycling infrastructure programme; and London's first-ever roads strategy and the associated £4b implementation programme.

Prior to her transport role, Isabel was the Mayor's Environment Advisor, responsible for delivering large-scale building retrofit programmes, parks and trees programmes and the £100m London Green Fund, among other initiatives.
