In addition to the formula Local Implementation Plans (LIP) funding provided to boroughs (as set out in question 2020/0668), Transport for London also provides funding to boroughs for the following activities: Bus Priority, Borough Cycling, Liveable Neighbourhoods, Crossrail Complementary Measures, Healthy Streets Supporting Measures etc. Including the LIP funding, the estimate is that £184m was provided to the boroughs in 2019/20 and that £206 million will be provided in 2020/21. This figure will differ from the amount shown in the Annual Report because the latter includes payments on smarter travel, congestion charge payments where relevant.  Final figures are only available at the end of the financial year once full spends and claims are available. The funding for infrastructure investment for the boroughs remains in line with the previous year.
