1. We have proposed a series of changes to the extent of the Transport for London Lane Rental scheme (TLRS). These are:
  • Network coverage likely to increase from 56% to 70-80%
  • The extent of the high charge network is likely to reduce by circa 10%
  • Work promoters will have increased windows to avoid incurring a charge on the lane rental network through reducing the times when charges will apply. For example the widest window of charge in the current scheme is from 06:30-22:00, and the proposal is to amend this to 06:30-20:30
  • A new charge will be introduced for footway occupation at the top 20 locations subject to heavy footfalls – mainly outside transport hubs

Please tell us in the space below whether you support or oppose these proposed changes.  It would also be very helpful if you could explain your answer.  Please also use this space to record any other comments you have about the proposed changes to the extent of the TLRS. 

2. We have proposed a series of changes to the pricing structure of the TLRS. These are:
  • New middle charge band of £1,500
  • Low charge band to increase from £800 to £1000. This has not been shared with external stakeholders
  • High charge band is capped by regulation at £2,500 so will remain unchanged
  • Discounts for major works that improve infrastructure and asset longevity, e.g. utility mains replacement of major TfL highway reconstruction schemes such as new cycle highways and junction improvements
  • Cumulative discounts for high performing work promoters with low non-compliance rates on safety, reinstatements, and works permit condition breaches, and also high lane rental charge avoidance
  • Applying Lane Rental charges to highway works undertaken by third party developers  

Please tell us in the space below whether you support or oppose these proposed changes.  It would also be very helpful if you could explain your answer.  Please also use this space to record any other comments you have about the proposed changes to the pricing structure of the TLRS.
