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 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 Harrow 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 govenrment funding settlement, we have allocated a total of £23.1million for LIP corridor funding across London for the period of 31 October 2020 to 31 March 2021. The amount allocated to Harrow is outlined in the letter below.

Find out more about LIP funding.

LIP targets for Harrow

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 103,572 in 2019. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2021 is 100,600.

We also work with boroughs to encourage more cycling. We recorded 3,198 daily cycle trips on average starting in Harrow between 2015 and 2018.

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

Vision Zero

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 56 individuals killed or seriously injured in Harrow. Our target for 2022 is to reduce this number to 38.

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 futher years' data and additional analysis capability, for example casualty rates by kilometre travelled.  

What we're working on in Harrow

Work now going on in your borough includes:

  • Step-free access - although affected by the pandemic work on improving access at both Harrow-on-the-Hill and Sudbury Hill stations is progressing and we hope to complete the work during 2021.
  • Station car parks - we're searching for a partner to work with us on developing car parks at Canons Park, Rayners Lane and Stanmore Tube stations. These three sites will hold approximately 400 homes, all of which will be affordable, and could also include new retail, commercial and leisure space, as well as improved connections for people walking and cycling in the area
  • Four Lines Modernisation - residents will benefit from this London-wide scheme to add room and boost reliability on four Tube lines, making journeys on the Metropolitan line faster and more comfortable

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.

Our assets in Harrow

Assets we maintain in your borough include:

We maintain our assets until they need to be renewed or disposed of as set out in our asset management plan. We do this by:

  • Servicing them regularly to keep them operational
  • Repairing or replacing faulty assets

Report a problem on a London street with our Streetcare tool.

We do not maintain in Harrow:

Report private hire vehicles (PHVs) parked on ranks or unattended taxis on ranks directly to us.
