Nick Fairholme, TfL's director of project and programme delivery, said: "Our network of red routes are the arteries of London's road network and play a vital role in helping people get around the capital safely, whether they are walking, cycling, getting the bus or driving.   

"This new contract framework will help us to deliver further vital walking and cycling schemes across London, and ensure that these important infrastructure assets on our road network are safe and well maintained for years to come."
