I am assuming that Tooley Street is a Category 1 road (as part of the Strategic Road Network) and therefore the fine is £2,500 per day of overrun.
This money goes to TfL are the highway authority for the network. The money is ring-fenced: "Any excess [after the deduction of costs incurred administering the scheme] must be used to develop and implement safe, integrated, efficient and economic transport facilities and services." However TfL can use them anywhere in London.
