Ealing council leader, councillor Julian Bell , also chair of London Councils Transport and Environment Committee, added: "London's boroughs welcome this long term settlement by the Mayor of London, which will assist in making borough streets greener and safer.
"It provides a much needed firm base from which to work with the Mayor and TfL to deliver the improvements to London's local transport scene as part of a city for all Londoners."
Last year's projects included works to improve road safety around schools in Hillingdon, a number of road safety schemes targeting accident prone areas in Brent and road safety improvements for cyclists and pedestrians in Kensington and Chelsea .
London's transport commissioner, Mike Brown, said:"We will work closer than ever before with all London boroughs to ensure London remains a world-class city with more attractive, accessible and people-friendly streets.
"Through this funding, Londoners will see real improvements to their local areas, through safer streets, improved public areas, more reliable public transport and increased walking and cycling facilities."
