The Government has repeatedly shown its commitment to supporting London’s transport network throughout the pandemic, providing over £4.5bn in emergency funding to Transport for London. Transport in London is devolved and is the responsibility of the Mayor and Transport for London. It is for them to decide which projects to prioritise and how to allocate funding to London boroughs. This is in line with devolution arrangements on transport spending in other city regions in England. Where London boroughs are the highways authority, it is their responsibility to ensure upkeep.
