Bexley

Streetspace for London

We are working with your borough to widen pavements at town centres and transport hubs, create temporary cycle routes on our transport network and create low traffic neighbourhoods.

Latest changes to travel

Here are some updates to your travel around London and your borough that you should know about including:

Funding in your borough

We provide funding to boroughs and local communities for transport improvements in your local area.

Your Local Implementation Plan (LIP)

The LIP is produced by the London Borough of Bexley and agreed with us. It sets out the details on transport infrastructure changes in a three-year period to support the Mayor's Transport Strategy.

As part of our recent funding settlement, we have allocated a total of £23.1m for LIP Corridor funding across London for the period of 31 October 2020 to 31 March 2021. The amount apportioned to your borough is outlined in the latest LIP allocation letter below.

Find out more about LIP funding.

LIP targets for Bexley

Each borough has set targets in their LIP against the Mayor's Transport Strategy outcomes - we track and report on progress against these targets in the LIP3 MTS outcomes borough data pack.

For example, the car ownership in the borough was 112,522 in 2019. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2021 is 112,000.

We also work with boroughs to encourage more cycling. We recorded 5,291 daily cycle trips on average starting in Bexley between 2015 and 2018.

More resident and visitor population figures are on the GLA website.

Vision Zero in your borough

We are working with boroughs to reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries from all road collisions to zero by 2041. They are responsible for enforcing safe speeds on their roads, as well as leading community programmes to encourage using roads safely. Find out more about Vision Zero.

In 2019 there were 77 individuals killed or seriously injured in Bexley. Our target for 2022 is to reduce this number to 52.

Find out more about collisions in your borough.

Our collision database, COLLSTATS, is now available as a self-service tool for borough officers and the Metropolitan Police. It allows site specific, borough or London wide collision searches to be made to the most recent validated police data that is available. For access to this database please email CollstatsHelpdesk@tfl.gov.uk.

Helping your community

The Vision Zero dashboard enables organisations and members of the public to more easily access and interpret collision data. In sharing collision data in this way, organisations can better identify the road danger challenges specific to their respective sectors and communities, and work together with us, London's boroughs and other agencies to tackle them.  

The dashboard currently comprises collision data from 2017-2019 and in will soon include future years' data and further analysis capability, for example casualty rates by kilometre travelled.   

What we're working on in Bexley

Work now going on in your borough includes:

  • Elizabeth line - this will provide direct services into central London and beyond. We're also working with the borough on proposals for an eastern extension from Abbey Wood to Ebbsfleet
  • Traffic light timing review - 30 sets of traffic lights in the borough are reviewed annually to make it easier for people to walk, cycle or take the bus
  • A2 Danson Underpass bridge - We are currently working underneath the A2 to replace expansion joints. These allow expansion/contrition during seasonal weather without compromising the integrity of the structure. Work requires lane closures and is due to finish in spring 2021

Bus network changes

From time to time - after consulting the public - we alter bus routes to reflect changing patterns in demand. We also make temporary changes, often because of road works. See the latest bus changes.
