Following the recommendations of the RTF, TfL is working with stakeholders to develop a longer-term strategy to help reduce the impact of freight in London, while allowing the freight sector to continue supporting London's economy.

I am committed to improving road safety and TfL is working to ensure that any policy recommendations will help to reduce road safety risk.
