Kingston council has announced what transport priorities will be put forward to TfL to receive funding.

Each year TfL allocates money to London boroughs to spend on projects that support the Mayor's Transport Strategy.

In order to secure funding, the council must demonstrate the proposed schemes will improve public transport and create opportunities for new homes and jobs.

Members of Kingston’s Environment and Sustainable Transport Committee recommended 10 engineering projects and 4 sustainable travel initiatives, totalling £1.2m to TfL.

Some of the recommendations put forward by Kingston include developing proposals to improve connectivity between Kingston town centre and Richmond town centre.

Kingston also proposes to convert zebra crossings along the A243 to pelican crossings and a review of the pedestrian and cycling routes in the South Lane area in New Malden.

The Mayor’s strategy aims for 80 per cent of all trips in London to be made on foot, by cycle or using public transport by 2041.
