The Mayor has provided £3.3m investment in transport for Camden to help boost the local economy. The money has been allocated through the Local Implementation Plan (LIP) funding for the borough to spend on projects that support the Mayor’s Transport Strategy.
The funding is awarded to support projects in the London boroughs that will make cycling safer and easier, improve walking facilities, make roads safer, smooth traffic flow and breathe new life into town centres, public squares and local shopping areas to boost the local economy.
The funding includes £210,000 for road safety improvements and public realm improvements such as the extension of the pedestrian pavement in the middle of Kingsway near Holborn tube station, new cycle parking and new street trees.
