London’s boroughs awarded £63 million in funding to make streets safer

27 March 2023/Categories: Active Travel & Travel Planning


Transport for London (TfL) has allocated over £63m in funding for London's boroughs in 2023/24, to make London’s roads safer and more attractive for people using public transport, walking and cycling.     

TfL has now allocated funding for the next financial year (2023/24), which will see nearly £39m allocated to outer London boroughs. Confirming this means that the boroughs now have certainty of funding and can look to progress their plans as efficiently as possible.

Following engagement with the boroughs, bus priority schemes will be funded, including the delivery of new bus lanes across London. More than 90 of the funded bus priority schemes are planned in outer London boroughs.

Specifically in outer London, this funding will help deliver a range of improvements to help support more active travel and support the expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone across London on 29 August. These include working with boroughs to introduce more 20mph speed limits on their road networks, as well as continuing a rollout of School Streets across Barking, Brent, Ealing, Hounslow, Redbridge, Richmond, and Waltham Forest, and more than 50 feasibility schemes for new cycle routes.  

Walking and Cycling Commissioner Will Norman said: "I am delighted that we have been able to award London's Boroughs with more than £63million in funding to make our streets healthier and safer. The funding will give boroughs the certainty to deliver improvements to public transport, support Vision Zero and make active travel safer and more appealing.  

"The funding will also support more active travel in outer London and help Londoners prepare for expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone. Boroughs have an essential role to play as we continue to build a safer, greener London for everyone and the Mayor and I will continue to work closely with them."
