Abstract

The implementation of a new public transport system is considered to have a significant impact on the flow of people and economies in cities and towns. Though, spatial configuration that could stimulate urban growth has yet to be clearly identified in transport and urban studies. The new public transport services are believed to increase transport network accessibility and facilitate daily commute. In the transport system, stations could be the “nodes” that enhance the transport integration by providing connection for flows of people and goods, as well as be the “places” where they emerge within urban fabric to support the diversity of socio-economic activities. In this regard, the objective of this study was to verify the spatial impact of new public transport systems, with particular attention paid to the neighbourhoods surrounding stations, to identify whether stations are embedded in better locations to optimise urban regeneration. // This study focused on the latest implementation of the London Underground system, the Jubilee Line Extension (JLE) which connects Central London to the East and South-east London. Four neighbourhood stations along the JLE (Bermondsey, Canada Water, Canning Town, and West Ham) have been analysed in this study. By applying space syntax theory and tools, this study accessed both qualitative and quantitative spatial analysis with demographic and land use data. The results revealed that the location of stations, in terms of the configurational urban network, would be a factor in optimising socio-economic development in the station neighbourhoods. It also suggested that space syntax could be an effective analytical methodology used to understand the relationship between transport network and urban morphology for future studies in land use and transport planning.
