Roads Task Force

This independent body was put together to develop a long-term strategy for roads and a commitment to major investment in street management and urban design.

The RTF report, published in July 2013, set out a view of how London could cope with major population growth and stay a vibrant, accessible and attractive world city.

An interactive map, case studies, technical notes and more are available on the RTF supporting documents page.

The Mayor of London's vision for London's streets is set out in the Mayor's Transport Strategy.

Our response to the report

We are responsible for roads that carry about a third of the Capital's traffic.

We responded to the RTF report in 2013 to explain our plans to improve London's roads and streets in partnership with the boroughs, developers and others.

Our response set out how we would deliver improvements in the short term, and do further, detailed studies to assess and develop longer-term RTF proposals.

The plans we set out in our RTF response were superseded by the 2018 Mayor's Transport Strategy.

Street Types

The RTF proposed a 'street family' of nine Street Types, in which streets are defined by significance of their 'movement' and the intensity of their 'place'.

We worked with the London boroughs to classify the network according to this family of Street Types.
