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.
For more information about the projects and to discover how our plan will make London a better place for us to live, work and travel visit the Road Modernisation Plan.

How this will affect you
As we implement our Road Modernisation Plan there will be disruption on the roads. While essential roadworks are happening, our 24 hour Traffic Control Centre is actively managing congestion in London in real-time, by identifying traffic hotspots and changing traffic light phasing to improve traffic flow on the roads.
Underpinning our approach will be enhancements to traffic light technology and systems that will increase our ability to dynamically manage London’s roads. We will actively manage traffic flows away from and around locations where construction is taking place or space has been reallocated.
We are introducing a world-leading intelligent transport system. We will provide road traffic updates with real-time information accessible through smartphones and satnav, to help all our customers plan their journeys and make informed choices about how, where and when they travel.
Check before you travel
There will be disruption as we deliver our plan but we will give as much notice as we can to minimise the impact to your journey. You can plan your journey in advance by using our real-time information tools on our traffic status updates page.
