TfL has recently provided the Assembly's Budget Monitoring Sub-Committee with details of investment on projects in TfL's Business Plan that is funded under the current grant settlement, which ends in 2015.

All grant funding beyond this settlement is subject to negotiation and I am, of course, making the strongest possible case for a settlement which will enable TfL to take forward all of its critical infrastructure projects.

TfL will write to the Budget Monitoring Sub-Committee again once those negotiations have concluded. In the meantime, more details of the scope and costs of the Tube investment programme are of course published each quarter in the TfL Investment Programme Report
