The borough will benefit from this year’s funding.
Bexley is set to profit from this year’s funding for local transport schemes from Transport for London (TfL).
The £2.7m scheme will be used on projects that include phase two of the Bexleyheath town centre revitalisation scheme and improving accessibility and connectivity in the Slade Green area.
The funding will also be put towards measures to encourage walking and cycling and supporting the maintenance of the roads, pavements and highway structures.
Cllr Don Massey, cabinet member for the environment and public realm, said: “This funding allows us to design and implement some much-needed local schemes that will benefit residents and businesses across the borough.”
The TfL funding forms part of Bexley’s Local Implementation Plan (LIP) allocation, which helps deliver the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy and the London Borough of Bexley’s transport priorities.
