Hammersmith & Fulham

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 King Street to let people get in and out of local shops and services more easily.

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 is produced by the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham 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.

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.
