TfL Road Rental Scheme - review

London's roads connect communities and are important in allowing the city to function but it is recognised that these are some of the most congested roads. The Mayor of London's Transport Strategy set out a range of initiatives for managing and reducing congestion, including a Healthy Streets approach for walking, cycling and public transport use.

With roadworks an inevitable part of growth and prosperity as utilities and infrastucture needs maintaining and modernising, together with commercial services.  The TfL Lane Rental Scheme, which applies to the most sensitive areas of the road network, allows utility companies and others to be charged a daily fee for digging up the busiest sections of London's roads at the busiest times.

The scheme is under review and TfL are seeking thoughts and views on the proposed changes.
