How we're managing traffic
At TfL, we use world-leading technology to control traffic signals to respond to incidents on London's road network and to manage congestion. We continually monitor the network and our 24/7 traffic control centre keeps the whole city moving, balancing queues across the main strategic routes and protecting critical bus corridors.
We will do everything we can to minimise disruption during these construction works, but some road users and bus passengers will experience increased congestion at certain times and places. The complexity of London's road network means that our active management can result in traffic in places which may not be near the causes of congestion.
