Funding for your borough

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

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.

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 2017 there were 72 individuals killed or seriously injured in Havering. Our target for 2022 is to reduce this number to 44.

What we're working on in Havering

Work now going on in your borough includes:

  • Beam Parkway - working with the borough, we're part funding a scheme that includes new segregated cycle lanes, more crossing points and improved public spaces along the A1306 New Road in Rainham. This will support the new Beam Park rail station and recently approved housing zone
  • Romford town centre - we're investing £5.7m as part of Liveable Neighbourhoods to help the council make the busy ring road easier to cross. Existing subways will be replaced by pedestrian and cycle crossings at street level, and a new bus lane and public spaces added
  • A12 Gubbins Lane - we're developing a scheme with the borough to improve pedestrian and cycling crossings

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.
