I was interested to see the published road programme. Could you outline which projects in South East London didn't make it into this plan and the criteria as to why they won't be carried forward. What now happens to such proposed schemes?

My Roads Modernisation Plan is the biggest road investment programme in London for a generation and some of the major schemes that it includes (such as that at Elephant and Castle) are highlighted on the TfL website. The Plan also includes many smaller projects, projects on borough roads and projects that do not yet have identified budgets. The list of schemes published on the TfL website provides a snapshot of planned programmes; it is not a complete view. The projects included aim to illustrate the breadth and variety of activity ahead.  The absence of any particular proposed schemes from the list should not be taken as an indication that they won’t be developed. 


There are a number of schemes in south east London and in other areas that TfL would like to take forward once funding is identified. For example in the south east this includes the work to improve the performance of the TLRN at A2 Bricklayers Arms. TfL has a process to identify and allocate funds for projects on the TLRN, as boroughs do for schemes on their roads.  The process involves gathering information from a range of sources to inform priorities.  Schemes are delivered as budget becomes available through the TfL business plan, from developers or from other sources. 


TfL will continue to consider the requirements for improvements to the road network in all parts of London including the south east. TfL would be more than happy to give you a detailed briefing on this.
