The Government has agreed a £1.6 billion funding and financing package for Transport for London to enable them to continue to transport passengers safely across London, supporting the capital’s gradual recovery from COVID-19.

The Department is committed to increasing cycling and walking as a way of enabling more people to move around safely while maintaining social distancing. This will help to relieve pressures on public transport as well as delivering other benefits.

Southwark Council received a £100,000 tranche 1 allocation from the Active Travel Fund in June 2020 to support the installation of temporary projects for the Covid-19 pandemic and will shortly have the opportunity to make a further bid for tranche 2 funding.
