TfL Ref: FOI-0691-1819

Thank you for your email received by Transport for London (TfL) on 14 June 2018.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and our information access policy. 

Unfortunately we do not hold the information you have requested. The cleaning contract for the LU network is a fixed price contract over five years and we are not able to break down costs for removing graffiti from other maintenance activities carried out.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
