The Network Management (NM) Directorate is responsible for maintaining and operating the circa. 6,000 traffic signal installations in London. Of these 3,000 are linked to the Directorate Urban Traffic Control (UTC) system, the majority of which run dynamic UTC SCOOT control, whilst the remainder operate UTC Fixed Time. The other circa 3,000 operates under local control i.e. CLF, VA or MOVA control. The vast majority of London’s signals have pedestrian facilities.

Project Details

• In January 2018 the Mayor of London announced his intention to deliver six new strategic cycling routes, originally identified as priority corridors in TfL’s Strategic Cycling Analysis (published June 2017).

• These Cycling Future Routes (CFR) form part of TfL’s Surface Transport investment in the Healthy Streets Portfolio and contribute to the Mayor’s Active, Safe, Space Efficient and Sustainable transport outcomes as set out in the Mayor’s Transport Strategy (MTS).

• Following the announcement in January 2018, the Mayor has requested that delivery of new cycling infrastructure be accelerated, with the aim to commission substantial sections by the end of 2019.

• NM provides significant input to the programme, through the provision of specialist Network Manager and Transport Modeller resource to support the design and implementation of traffic signal schemes that improve provision for cyclists on street.

• Consultants have been a key part of the development of the current wave of major cycle infrastructure to be introduced onto London’s road network.
