A1010S to North Middlesex Hospital Cycle Route

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

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 motor vehicle drivers having to use different routes to access their destination. This closure to motor vehicles will continue to allow emergency services access.

The project is implemented as a trial using Experimental Traffic Orders (ETOs). 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.

    Enfield Council have introduced a new cycle route that connects the existing route from Cycleway 1 (southern end of the A1010 South project on Fore Street) with North Middlesex Hospital. The route is approximately 1.4km long and extends between Park Road and the A406 North Circular Road underpass at Bull Lane.

    The project has been implemented as a trial using Experimental Traffic Orders (ETO) which require a period of consultation with local residents, businesses and other stakeholders during the trial period.

    There will be a range of assessments that will need to be balanced when judging the overall success of the trial. Assessments will include:

    • Residents’ views on how the benefits of the scheme compare against the disbenefits
    • Data on the number of cycle journeys that make use of the route
    • Data on the volume of motor vehicle movements in the area
    • Data on the speed of motor vehicles in the area
    • Impact on the primary roads in the area
    • Air quality considerations
    • Bus journey time considerations through discussion with Transport for London
    • Outcomes of ongoing dialogue with the Emergency Services

    Now that the community have had the opportunity to experience the trial working in practice, we would like to invite you to share your feedback. The responses will be analysed and summarised in the formal report that will inform any decision made.

    Once you submit the survey you will be sent a copy of your responses.
