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 changes to your travel around London 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 113,172 in 2017. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2021 is 112,000.

Residents in Bexley made an average of 535,000 trips each day between 2015 and 2018 by:

  • Car and motorcycle: 56%
  • Tube/DLR: 0%
  • National Rail and London Overground: 9%
  • Bus/Tram: 10%
  • Taxi/Other: 1%
  • Cycle: 1%
  • Walking: 23%

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 2017 there were 57 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


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 currenlty working underneath the A2 to replace expansion joints. These allow expansion/contrition during seasonal weather without comprimising 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.
