Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has today announced over £2.6m for transport improvements in Hackney.

The funding has been allocated by Transport for London (TfL) through the Local Implementation Plan (LIP) process.

The £2.6m funding package for 2012/13 will finance a range of transport projects in Hackney, including:

£250,000 to improve safety and visibility at the junctions of Hackney Road and Cremer Road to Kingsland Road in Shoreditch.

£250,000 to improve Mare Street, from St Thomas’s Square to Victoria Park Road in South Hackney.

£250,000 for Leonard Circus and Paul Street in Shoreditch, to redesign the existing junction to provide better access for road users and pedestrians.

All of London’s 33 boroughs receive the finance to spend on projects supporting the Mayor’s transport strategy - including safer roads, smoothing traffic flow, rejuvenating town centres and better facilities for cycling and walking.
