More than £80 Million allocated for safer London streets

07 February 2024/Categories: Industry News, Active Travel & Travel Planning, Logistics & Supply Chain


Transport for London (TfL) has announced a total £80.4 million will be shared amongst London’s 33 boroughs this 2024/25 financial year.

The funding is part of TfL’s Local Implementation Plan (LIP) which includes £41m available to outer London boroughs and £25m to inner London boroughs.

LIP funding will deliver new schemes on London roads with over 150 proposed pedestrian crossing upgrades, introduction of 20mph speed limits in certain locations and junction and corridor improvement schemes.

Penny Rees TfL's Head of Healthy Streets Investment: "Working closely with London's boroughs is central to achieving a cleaner, greener and healthier London by reducing road danger, improving air quality and encouraging active travel.”

Funding will also be allocated to bus propriety schemes which include the delivery of new bus lanes across London.   

TfL recently released a three-year report on past LIP funding that shows how boroughs have been using the funding for new infrastructure which play a role in the Mayor of London’s vision zero goal, eliminating death and serious injury on the city’s transport network.

Cllr Kieron Williams, London Councils' Executive Member for Climate Change, Transport and Environment, said: "This new round of funding is great news for our city. London boroughs are working hard to make our capital's streets better, making it easier to walk and cycle, and making London more accessible for those with disabilities. For example, around 500 school streets were recently introduced across the capital meaning almost a quarter of primary schools now have better and safer access at key times.  

The Deputy Mayor for Transport, Seb Dance, said: "It's fantastic that London boroughs will receive this funding from TfL to continue the vital work they do to keep London's streets clean, safe and accessible. It is only by working together, with boroughs at a local level and with central Government that we can keep building a better, safer, greener city for all Londoners."
