TfL Road Network awarded £1m in funding

08 August 2022/Categories: Active Travel & Travel Planning, Transport Planning


As part of, the Mayor of London’s Green and Healthy Streets Fund, TfL has been awarded £1 million for greening projects on the TfL Road Network. The fund will deliver vital greening projects on the capital’s roads and public spaces in order to tackle the devastating impacts of climate change.

Projects include transforming the Joe Strummer pedestrian subway at Edgware Road (Borough of Westminster) into rain gardens. The existing subway has been closed for several years with pedestrians able to cross at the surface level. With this new funding, TfL will fill in the entrance ramps and stairs to the subway with soil and vegetation to create a series of rain gardens

The programme is being delivered in close partnership with TfL. It supports delivery of the Green New Deal Mission under the London Recovery Programme, policies in the London Environment Strategy and aligns with the Healthy Streets approach in the Mayor’s Transport Strategy.  

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “The climate emergency is the biggest global threat we face today and its effects are on our doorstep. The flash flooding we experienced last year and the extreme heatwaves last month risk becoming more common as we deal with the impacts of the climate crisis.

“This funding will help boroughs across London and TfL invest in projects that will improve climate resilience so we are more prepared to respond to and recover from extreme weather incidents, they will also make the local area greener and more pleasant to be in.

“As Mayor I am determined to invest in more green spaces for all. We need to act now to adapt our city and build a better London for everyone – a safer, fairer, greener and more prosperous city for all.”
