Enfield Council are in the process of delivering a strategic walking and cycling route, funded by Transport for London as part of the Streetspace for London programme.

The primary aim of this project is to connect the existing route from Cycleway 1 (southern end of the A1010 South project on Fore Street) with North Middlesex Hospital. The proposals create a route of approximately 1.4km length between Park Road and the A406 North Circular Road underpass at Bull Lane.

The plans that we have developed, subject to the Council approval process, propose a walking and cycling route that will:

  • Deliver a key strategic link which will provide increased access for key workers and people with reduced mobility travelling to North Middlesex Hospital.
  • Provide an opportunity for a future extension of the route to connect with Cycle Superhighway 1 (CS1) in Haringey.
  • Lessen the demand for use of public transport, which owing to Covid-19 has reduced capacity.
  • Widen footways to accommodate pedestrians and cyclists, providing space for social distancing.
  • Improve junctions and crossings to enable more people to walk and cycle safely.
  • Introduce a modal filter to reduce through traffic and speeds on Park Road, which can result in some residents having to use different routes to access their homes. This closure to motor vehicles will continue to allow emergency services access.

At this stage, the intention is to implement the measures on an experimental basis. This means that once the measures are put in place, there will be at least a 6-month period where you can provide formal comments on the scheme. Once a minimum of 6 months has passed, we will then review these comments and formally respond to the issues raised in a report for the scheme. Based on this report, a further decision will then be taken on whether to implement the scheme as per the trial, to make some adjustments, or to remove the scheme entirely.
