Borough councils will receive nearly £13million next year to help improve their roads and public transport.

Transport services and councils in North London will get the money from Transport for London (TfL) for 2016 projects, including making roads wider and introducing 20mph speed limits.

The money is intended to create safer roads and cycling lanes, better public spaces, and for improving pavements.

Each individual borough will receive differing amounts. Here is the breakdown:

  • Barnet - £4.8 million, including £200,000 towards introducing 20mph limits around nine schools across the borough. In 2015, Barnet used £700,000 from TfL to implement these limits.
  • Haringey - £2.7 million, including £122,000 to support a major scheme around White Hart Lane (pictured) to widen and resurface pavements. This is in anticipation of Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium, which was granted planning permission in December.
  • Enfield - £5.4 million including £1.1m for accessibility, road safety and other improvements around Ponders End.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson MP, said: “This latest round of funding will help to transform scores of locations in all four corners of our great city. It is specifically targeted to help make our roads, town centres and open spaces more attractive places with better facilities for walking and safer cycling. By helping the boroughs deliver on important local transport schemes, we can help to spur jobs and growth across London.”

Last year, the North London boroughs used TfL cash for a range of changes.

Haringey Council spent £600,000 towards improving public spaces around Green Lanes, while Enfield Council spent £100,000 to increase the proportion of bus stops in the borough which are wheelchair accessible to over 90 per cent.
