Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, is set to hand over almost £5 million to the borough of Bromley. The finances will be used for town centre improvements and transport projects in order to help bolster infrastructure in the borough. The money, which is part of a £148 million fund from Transport for London and Boris Johnson, will be allocated to projects throughout the capital.
Boris Johnson has allocated the money to Bromley and the other London boroughs to transform a number of different areas. The money is specifically designated to improve town centres, open spaces and roads, including making them more attractive and enhancing the facilities and safety elements for both walkers and cyclists. The hope is that by enabling the Bromley to deliver these vital transport developments, they can help to increase the number of jobs in the area and enhance the overall London economy.
In total, Bromley will receive £4.9 million from the Mayor of London. £1.4 million of this will be used to improve the town centre area of Beckenham, including creating an attractive and easy route for pedestrians. This will bring about real improvements for residents of Bromley and those across South London.
