LIP funding is the process through which TfL provides financial support to boroughs for schemes to improve their transport networks in line with MTS objectives.

The latest LIP delivery plan is on the LIPs page in Publications & reports.

LIP Funding

We provide financial support to boroughs for schemes to improve their transport networks.

Funding is allocated under five main programmes:

  • Principal road maintenance
  • Bridge strengthening
  • Corridors, neighbourhoods and supporting measures
  • Traffic signal modernisation for sites on borough roads
  • Major Schemes

Funding for Principal road maintenance and bridge strengthening is awarded to roads and bridges most in need of repair, and is established through condition surveys.

Corridors, neighbourhoods and supporting measures funding is allocated using a formula that was agreed with London Councils and the London Technical Advisory Group (LoTAG) in 2010.

Funding under the Major Schemes programme is awarded through a competitive bidding process based on need, design and implementation.

Read more about Major Schemes.

LIP spending and delivery plans

Each year, London boroughs must submit a LIP annual spending submission with specific details of individual schemes they want to take forward. At the end of the financial year, each borough must submit a report on how they have delivered a range of priorities such as cycle parking, 20 mph zones and pedestrian crossings.

See the final LIPS allocations.

To see what each borough put in their LIP funding letter, see Information by borough.

Third LIPs

We have issued new draft LIPs guidance in parallel to the draft MTS published in June 2017. This guidance sets out the requirements under the LIP process and will help to make sure borough plans are consistent with objectives in the new MTS.

We will review any comments we receive on the guidance and make any necessary updates before we issue it formally, alongside the publication of the MTS, in early 2018.You can either provide comments or questions as part of your formal consultation submission to the draft MTS or separately.

Boroughs Portal

The Boroughs Portal is a web-based system that we, along with boroughs and partnerships, use to manage LIP and non-LIP funding that we provide.

The Portal is used to apply for funds, allocate funds, report on scheme progress, and the subsequent claiming of funds from TfL.
