Transport for London’s (TfL’s) budget is not divided along the geographic lines of the River Thames. TfL’s infrastructure upgrades are considered and designed to benefit all Londoners.

Local Implementation Plan (LIP) funding is the process through which TfL provides financial support to boroughs for schemes to improve their transport networks in line with my Transport Strategy objectives. In TfL’s 2018 Business Plan, the LIP allocation for 19/20 is £20,740,000 for boroughs south of the river and £44,005,000 for boroughs north of the river.*

Just under two-thirds of London’s population is north of the river, the remaining third is south of the river, and TfL’s surface level schemes broadly reflect this.

*This analysis excludes the London Borough of Richmond which spans the River Thames.
