The ANPR camera network will be replaced in 2020/21 subject to the necessary approval process. This planned work will replace the existing cameras, some of which will be over 12 years old, with high definition cameras improving the quality of the image captured and meaning fewer cameras are required on the street.

There are currently no new capabilities specified for this programme of work, however TfL is continuously reviewing this and will consider advances in technology that could be incorporated to reduce ongoing operational cost and improve services.
