Roads Task Force

This independent body brings together a wide range of interests and expertise, united in the belief that the Capital needs 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, sets out a vision of how London can cope with major population growth and remain one of the most vibrant, accessible and attractive world cities.

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

April 2015 progress report

Since our last progress report, work has continued to realise the RTF's vision. The April 2015 progress report provides an update on our achievements so far.

Our response to the report

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

We have responded to the RTF report to explain how we plan to improve London's roads and streets in partnership with the boroughs, developers and others.

Our response below sets out how we will deliver improvements in the short-term and conduct further, detailed studies to assess and develop longer-term RTF proposals.

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 are working with the London boroughs to classify the network according to this new family of Street Types.
