TfL's Transport Plans

4 December 2012, 11:51

Transport for London has announced fares are to rise above inflation for the next decade.

The amount of money spent on the roads is to double over the next ten years to nearly four billion pounds.

Proposals include more smart, automated traffic lights and a 300 million pound "growth fund" to generate jobs in areas with poor connections to the rest of London.

Labour says it means roadworks for the next decade.

The proposals also include investment in cycling. The Mayor intends to transform cycling in London by investing an additional £640m directly into cycling over the next 10 years, on top of the £273m that was previously identified in TfL's 10 year base plan.
