Four innovative schemes that will transform streets in London have been awarded grants from Transport for London (TfL). The grants are given to push innovative solutions to the use of the limited road space in London to address congestion, overcrowding, air quality and noise pollution. Examples include an intelligent street that generates energy and improves air quality, a flexible boardwalk, a central platform for ordering deliveries to be made using electric vehicles or cargo bikes and a noise absorbing system to be installed in an underpass.
We’re investing in bright ideas to radically improve London’s streets. From ideas such as temporary public plazas to new street layouts, technology and infrastructure, the fund is a great way to try out innovative low-cost measures. – Transport for London (TfL)
