Answer for South Circular

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Transport for London (TfL) is working with the London Borough of Lewisham on this project.  Some £250,000 has been allocated for the next stage of town centre feasibility design, with £100,000 from TfL and £150,000 from Lewisham. This design funding will be used to improve understanding of the highway designs and their affects on road users.

There is currently no funding in the TfL business plan for delivery of the scheme. The case for any future funding will depend on the overall viability of the scheme, including the availability of third-party funding and wider benefits. These will be assessed during the next phase of design work.
