Transport for London (TfL) has allocated more than 63 million GBP in 2023/24 funding to help make roads in London safer and more compatible with public and active transport.

This Healthy Streets investment is part of the Mayor’s Vision Zero goal of eliminating death and serious injury from the transport network by providing opportunities for safe and active travel.

Dedicated bus lanes help improve the reliability of TfL services

The newly announced funding will help deliver new cycle routes, pedestrian crossings and bus priority schemes, including new bus lanes and transit signal priority instalments.

These projects will contribute to London’s target of building 25 kilometres of new bus lanes by March 2025.

For example, with support from this funding, Newham will complete the construction of a bus priority scheme on the approach to the junction of Prince Regent Lane and Tollgate Road. This project will add approximately 600 metres of new bus lanes.

In addition, Barking and Dagenham will complete the construction of a bus priority scheme on Wood Lane, introducing 250 metres of new bus lanes and upgrading the existing traffic signals.

The funding will also be used to deliver a range of improvements to encourage active travel and support the expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ).

Alex Williams, Chief Customer and Strategy Officer at TfL, said:

London's boroughs are at the centre of our plans to transform access to walking, cycling and public transport and the Local Implementation Plan programme is vital in providing more localised investment in bus priority, walking and cycling schemes across the city.

This investment will deliver benefits, especially in outer London and plays a huge role in our determination to provide a green, healthy and sustainable future for all Londoners. We look forward to working closely with the boroughs to deliver projects that make our city greener, safer and better for everyone.
