Since the last MQT, TfL has carried out a large amount of work to provide extra information requested by the DfT to inform the discussions on ELL Phase 2. This work is now completed and the DfT should have sufficient information to make a positive decision on providing funding towards the project. Both TfL and DfT are meeting shortly to discuss the scheme further and make a decision on whether or not the project can proceed.
