Are you satisfied that all TfL’s areas of responsibility in Havering and Redbridge are being improved in a timely manner?

I have set out an ambitious programme for London in my Transport Strategy, and a lot has been achieved in these boroughs over the last four years, including five stations having been made step free - South Woodford, Buckhurst Hill, Newbury Park, Gidea Park and Harold Wood.

Transport for London (TfL) has upgraded a number of roads and junctions including investing £3.4m in making Redbridge and Charlie Browns Roundabouts safer. The Ardleigh Green Bridge replacement has been completed, and TfL is working closely with Havering Council and the DfT on plans to replace the flyover at Gallows Corner.

On cycling, Quietway 6 was completed in 2018, and TfL has consulted on a new cycling route connecting Ilford with Stratford. The bus network is also being improved, and the A12 Eastern Avenue Low Emission Bus Zone has decreased harmful emissions by 91 per cent.

While there is still more to do, like fully opening the Elizabeth Line and improving the Central line, I am determined to keep working to ensure we can continue to invest in a safe, reliable and affordable transport network for the whole of London.
