What is the cost to TfL of insuring pedestrian crossings, compared with the cost of insuring pedestrian bridges? Who does the liability fall on, is it TfL as the Highway Authority, or the local Borough?

It is not possible to identify the costs of insuring TfL's liability for claims arising from the ownership or management of those pedestrian crossings or pedestrian bridges under its control. This insurance is part of TfL's overall insurance programme covering all its activities, including those of London Underground. The same would apply to the London Boroughs for assets which they own or are responsible for.
