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.
The Green Man Authority
We've updated traffic lights at pedestrian crossings so pedestrians will see a continuous green man signal unless a vehicle is approaching. In that case, the red man will appear.
This initiative, unique to the UK, is part of our wider Streetspace for London programme.
The Green Man Authority technique has been installed in Hillingdon at The Greenway by Merryfields.

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 Hillingdon 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 with the goverment, we have allocated £23.1million across London's boroughs for LIP Corridor work. Details of the funding provided for Hillingdon can be found in the letter below.
