Transport for London is proposing to allow the developer at Brent Cross licence to spend £286m upgrading the main TfL highways and the M1. Can you provide a previous example of where a developer has been given responsibility for spending tens of millions of pounds carrying out work on the Transport for London road network and borough roads?

There are over one hundred schemes across London covered by similar arrangements, including substantial programmes like Lewisham Gateway and at Victoria where developers are investing tens of millions of pounds on TfL's road network.

At Brent Cross, as for all these schemes, TfL retains powers as the Highway Authority to ensure that the work is designed and implemented to a sufficiently high and acceptable standard.
