We provide funding to boroughs and local communities for transport improvements in your local area.
Through our Opportunity Area Planning Framework (OAPF) we identified Thamesmead and Abbey Wood as one of the largest opportunity areas in London in terms of population growth. To support this growth, we have looked at transport schemes that could support the levels of growth, for example:
The GLA gathered feedback from the local community in 2019 on the scale and nature of new development that could come to the area, and the public transport options identified to unlock this. We are now working with the GLA on a statutory consultation on the draft OAPF.
Funding for these schemes will need to be worked out with the Greenwich, Newham and landowners.

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.
