London’s boroughs to receive funding to make streets healthier and safer for all

A report from TfL has highlighted the “central role” that boroughs play in important change, showcasing how TfL funding has been used to transform the capital’s streets. This includes 110 schemes to improve bus reliability, 157 km of new cycle routes and 500 school streets.

Funding will support the boroughs to deliver new cycle routes, school streets schemes, new or upgraded pedestrian crossings and bus priority schemes on borough roads.

“London’s boroughs play a key role in the planning and delivery of schemes that transform local areas and meet the aims of the Mayor’s Transport Strategy,” TfL says. “These include improved public transport, schemes that support the Mayor’s Vision Zero goal of eliminating death and serious injury from the transport network and opportunities for safe and active travel in local communities. Enabling more people to walk, cycle and access public transport is vital to a healthier and more sustainable city for all Londoners.”

TfL’s funding for the next financial year (2024/25), will initially see £41 million allocated to outer London boroughs and £25 million in funding to inner London boroughs. TfL expects to allocate a total of £80.4 million in funding. This will help deliver a range of improvements in outer London to help support more active travel and support last year’s expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone across London.
