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.
Pavements have been widened on Camden High Street to allow people to access local essential shops and services more easily.
Latest changes to travel
There are temporary changes to travel in London while we work on supporting the restart of the Capital including:
- Additional travel support for children and young people returning to school

Consultation on operating hours of bus lanes in London
As part of London Streetspace programme, we're proposing to trial changes to the operating hours of more than 80 kilometres of bus lanes across London to make bus journeys faster and more reliable.
We want to make sure that people choosing to travel on the bus network have the safest, quickest and most reliable journey at all times of the day. Proposals follow recent extensions to bus lane hours that have seen improvements to speeds and reliability.
The trial of 24/7 bus lanes is planned to be in place for at least six months to ensure we have enough time to properly monitor the effectiveness of the trial and any impacts. Find out more and share your views at any time online or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funding for your borough
We provide funding to boroughs and local communities for transport improvements in your local area.
Local Implementation Plan (LIP)
The LIP funding stream provided by TfL to help our partners in the boroughs and the City of London has been paused while we focus on measures to increase walking and cycling and to ensure social distancing on our network.
LIP targets for Camden
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 47,781 in 2017. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2021 is 47,600.
Residents in Camden made an average of 603,000 trips each day between 2015 and 2018 by:
- Car and motorcycle: 13%
- Tube/DLR: 17%
- National Rail and London Overground: 11%
- Bus/Tram: 13%
- Taxi/Other: 3%
- Cycle: 3%
- Walking: 48%
We also work with boroughs to encourage more cycling. We recorded 28,083 daily cycle trips on average starting in Camden between 2015 and 2018.
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 144 individuals killed or seriously injured in Camden. Our target for 2022 is to reduce this number to 80.
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 msot recent validated police data that is available. For access to this database please email CollstatsHelpdesk@tfl.gov.uk.
