TfL Launch London Roadlab Innovation Programme

Transport for London (TfL) has teamed up with Plexal, the innovation centre, and utility partners to launch London Roadlab

This will be a 10-week programme which will combine funding and expert advice to scale your solutions at real pilot sites together with TfL, Plexal and a consortium of some of the nation’s largest utilities providers.

Roadworks are a considerable drag on London's economy, costing over £2bn every year. The programme focuses on three challenge areas;

  • Inclusive; Streets must be accessible to all Londoners and TfL has made a lot of progress in achieving its Healthy Streets vision. How do we leverage technology to make our roads even more inclusive during maintenance and upgrades?
  • Safer; TfL has already implemented solutions to achieve its Vision Zero goal on our roads, but how do we minimise the health and safety risks for workers and the public even further during roadworks?
  • Smarter; Developments in smart technology across all industries are already shaping London into a city of the future. But how can we take advantage of new and untried solutions to minimise the impact of roadworks?

Following the 10-week programme participants will be able to pitch their ideas direct to TfL and utility partners, with the chance to work with them over the long-term. 

Applicants for the first stage of selection close at noon on the 26 November - apply here.
