Answer for Street Nameplates

Answered By: 
Ken Livingstone

London boroughs are responsible for street nameplate maintenance. Nevertheless, TfL is working with the boroughs to develop guidance on this issue, and this will include advice from the TfL Equality and Inclusion Team. TfL is currently considering recommendations for gathering further information about problems with street nameplates, building on the research carried out for the LTUC reported on in 2003. .
