The London Health Commission's "Better Health for London" report says, "TfL's 'Legible London' programme…should be celebrated and expanded to outer London". Can you update me on the progress made by TfL on this issue?

Since 2010, TfL has been working alongside boroughs and other stakeholders to install Legible London signs across the Capital. We have an ambition to see 3000 signs in place by 2021 and already have over 1450 on street.

TfL is currently supporting several outer London boroughs with the delivery of Legible London signs. New schemes are underway in Enfield, Kingston, Redbridge, Haringey and Sutton.

In outer London there are now over 350 Legible London signs installed across 16 boroughs and this number is set to increase with further schemes planned.
