We recently launched a hard-hitting film showing the dangers of taking risks on the road. The film is part of our latest road safety campaign to address the five main sources of road danger that contribute to casualties and collisionon London’s roads:

• Travelling too fast
• Becoming distracted
• Undertaking risky manoeuvres
• Driving under the influence of alcohol
 or drugs

• Failing to comply with the laws of the roads

Cracking Down on Congestion 

A new team of 40 TfL Road and Transport Enforcement Officers is being deployed to key traffic routes across London to tackle illegal road behaviour. The team, which will be 80-strong by spring, will deal with problems such as illegal stopping and delays to road users caused by the unloading of deliveries. 

Funding Secured for New Stations 

We have secured €4m from the European Commission to progress plans for two new London Overground stations located at Old Oak Common. We will match this funding to develop the various options for possible stations at Old Oak Common Lane and Hythe Road. 

Temporary Closure of Holland Park Tube Station 

Holland Park Tube Station will be closed until August 16th for lift replacement work. 

Bakerloo Line Extension

We are starting detailed technical work to build a case for extending the line from Elephant and Castle to Lewisham via Old Kent Road, after a thorough assessment of possible routes. We published a summary of our findings which shows this route has the strongest case, and the potential to support around 25,000 homes. By terminating at Lewisham, the link could be operational by 2030. We have not ruled out a second phase extension beyond Lewisham in the future.
