Roads and transport policy

Local Implementation Plan

The Barking and Dagenham third Local Implementation Plan (LIP3) outlines our proposed strategy for delivering improvements to the transport system in the borough to 2041. The plan was agreed by our cabinet and assembly in January 2019 and approved by the Mayor of London in April 2019.

The LIP contains a range of measures and interventions that we believe will help deliver our borough manifesto ambition of growing the borough and to make a lasting difference to those who live, work and do business in the borough.

Should you have any questions about the LIP please contact transportpolicy@befirst.london for further details.

We has a legal duty to undertake a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) as part of the development of the LIP. As part of this process we have produced an Environmental Report which explains the significant environmental impacts of the draft LIP, the alternatives considered and the mitigation measures proposed.

Highways investment programme Toggle accordion

Each year we identify funding to invest into the borough’s roads and pavements, to maintain their condition as far as possible with the limited funding available.

Cabinet has agreed a highway investment for the next 3 years of £9 million for footway and carriageway reconstruction/resurfacing.

Although we repair dangerous potholes, some carriageways are beyond repair due to their age, condition and damage by water. In these cases it’s more cost-effective to resurface the entire carriageway, but this requires major investment. We have to prioritise resurfacing those areas of the highway in the worst condition.

We further prioritise carriageways close to schools.

The roads that are included in the programme are listed here. The programme may be adjusted if circumstances such as severe weather conditions cause other roads to deteriorate rapidly.
