Healthy streets schemes
We are working to support boroughs in the delivery of their schemes within the current funding environment. In places this means new cycle routes and low traffic neighbourhoods and in others prioritising buses and making journey times faster and more reliable.
Pavements have been widened in Brixton to allow people to access local essential shops and services more easily. We are also creating space for cycling on the A23 between Oval and Streatham Hill.
Pavements have been widened on Loughborough Junction to allow people to access local essential shops and services more easily.
Here are some updates to your travel around London and your borough that you should know about including:
- We have launched a public consultation to shape future step-free access priorities and improvements on the London Underground network, the first of its kind in 15 years
- We have published a progress report which outlines achievements from the past three years and commits to new tougher measures to ensure that it meets its Vision Zero goal of eliminating death and serious injury from London's roads
- Our latest condition of carriage around face coverings. These must be worn on all TfL services
- our efforts to still encourage customers to be considerate and give each other space where possible
- Using the TfL Go app for helping you travel comfortably
- Our pay as you go fares are automatically capped, so you don't need to buy a travel card in advance.Create an online account or use the Oyster app to quickly and easily calculate your expenses.
- Travel guidance for businesses and their staff
- Our Turn Up And Go service which has now fully resumed
- The opportunity for you to provide feedback on the electric scooter (e-scooter) trial in several London boroughs

Public Transport Access Levels - Lambeth
LIP targets for Lambeth
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 64,617 in 2019. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2021 is 64,200.
We also work with boroughs to encourage more cycling. We recorded 31,149 daily cycle trips on average starting in Lambeth between 2019 and 2020.
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 and the Lowering Speed Limits Programme.
In 2019 there were 200 individuals killed or seriously injured in Lambeth. Our target for 2022 is to reduce this number to 146.
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.
TfL's Motorcycle safety courses
We offer a range of free online and face to face motorcycle safety training courses across all boroughs to help ensure motorcyclists stay safe on London's busy roads. These also support the Vision Zero objective to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries on London's roads by 2041.
Electric scooter (e-scooters) trial
In partnership with London Councils, we're running an e-scooters trial. On Monday 7 June 2021 e-scooters became available to rent in a small number of London boroughs. Working together on a single trial means the trial can run consistently across participating boroughs, with safety at its core.
We are still inviting boroughs to join the trial. If you want to get involved, please get in touch.
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 2017-2020 and will soon include future data and further analysis capability.
What we're working on in Lambeth
- We consult local communities on a range of projects every year. Search our consultation and engagement hub - Have Your Say
- Find out about major works and events near you
- See some ongoing TfL improvements and projects in or near Lambeth
- Find out about property development projects in your borough
Work now going on in your borough includes:
- Vauxhall Cross gyratory - we're working with Lambeth Council to return the one-way road system to two-way and improve the area for people walking and cycling with more cycle and pedestrian crossings, segregated lanes and parking for cyclists. We'll also create new public spaces and improve existing ones. A new central bus station will work in a two-way arrangement
- Waterloo IMAX roundabout - we plan to pedestrianise part of the roundabout to create a new public space, an improved bus station and better environment for people using public transport, walking and cycling
- Streatham Hill A23 - we are moving forward with permanent measures to make roads in Streatham much safer and less intimidating for people walking and cycling, following a public consultation that showed strong support for TfL's plans for the area
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.
Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)
Air pollution is not just a central London problem, with many areas still exceeding the legal limits for pollution across the city. The central London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) expanded to create a single, larger zone up to the North Circular Road (A406) and South Circular Road (A205).
The North and South Circular Roads themselves are not in the zone. This is part of the commitment by the Mayor and TfL to help every Londoner breathe cleaner air.
The ULEZ will continue to operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including weekends (except Christmas day), with a £12.50 daily charge for vehicles that do not meet the required emissions standards.
Four out of five cars already meet the ULEZ emissions standards, but we need owners of the remaining polluting cars, motorcycles, lighter vans and minibuses to take action by checking their vehicle.
