London’s Roads Future Plan

London’s Roads Future Plan. Over 26 million journeys begin on London’s roads each day. That is why we are investing £4billion, the largest investment in a generation, into improving London’s roads.

The Road Modernisation Plan includes hundreds of transformational projects designed to radically improve living and travelling conditions through safer, greener and more attractive streets and town centres, and safer conditions for cyclists and pedestrians. Working with the boroughs, we will make large scale improvements to bridges, tunnels and major roads, resulting in a road network that enables people and vehicles to move more efficiently, safely and reliably around London. read more
