Question

The previous Mayor's 2016/17 consultation budget listed £20m of road safety spending and £25m of funding for roads and traffic policing within TfL's existing business plan as 'under review'. TfL's latest road casualty data shows that the total number of people killed or injured on London's roads has risen again. Will you therefore safeguard this funding when you re-write the TfL business plan later this year?

Casualty figures for 2015 show that the number of people killed or injured in road collisions in London reduced by two per cent compared to the previous year.

Clearly, there is an enormous amount of work still to do and I am determined to do all I can.

I will ensure that road safety, including roads and transport policing and enforcement, will continue to be key priorities for TfL and the TfL Business Plan will set this out later this year.

While the funding levels for the various road safety activities have not be finalised, it is clearly vital that we deliver safer streets for Londoners.
