Connaught Gardens Area Quieter Neighbourhood

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

Enfield Council are in the process of delivering a series of measures in the Connaught Gardens area as part of the Quieter Neighbourhood project.

The aim of this scheme is to address shared concerns between both residents and the Council on motor traffic speeds, motor traffic volumes, and ‘rat-running’ traffic through the area. A set of measures is being developed to address the concerns raised by residents for many years. The proposals will help address the issue on an area-wide basis and bring about the following benefits:

  • Reduction in the volume of motor traffic that is cutting through residential streets instead of using other primary roads to reach their destinations.
  • Reduction in the speeds that people drive at on the residential streets and in front of the schools within the area.
  • Quieter residential areas with reduced traffic levels, whilst keeping open the maximum possible access points for residents and emergency services.
  • A safer environment which will enable people to walk and cycle from their front door and encourage them to incorporate active travel as part of their journeys.
  • Reduction in emissions from motor vehicles within the residential area and therefore an improvement air quality.

The scheme will be delivered in two phases, as outlined below:

Stage of Delivery

Proposals

Funding Arrangements

Timeframe

Feedback Opportunities

Phase 1

One-way system on Windsor Road, Osborne Road, and short sections of Lightcliffe Road and New River Crescent.

Council funded

Delivery by end of 2020.

Delivered using Experimental Traffic Orders (ETOs), with views from the community collected during a trial period.

Phase 2

The remaining Quieter Neighbourhood measures as shown in the scheme map (note early engagement with emergency services continues).

Initial funding secured from TfL to enable design work to progress. Awaiting further funding from Department for Transport / Transport for London to enable future implementation.

Design in progress.

Implementation timescale presently unknown and subject to funding.

Early engagement taking place now to enable residents to comment on the designs and help finalise the future scheme that is going to be delivered. A formal 6-month consultation to follow as part of the trial to inform future of the scheme.


The current temporary one-way system on Windsor Road, Osborne Road, and the associated sections of Lightcliffe Road and New River Crescent will be maintained until the one-way system (Phase 1) is implemented.

In order to develop further and finalise our plans to address your concerns for the area, we want to hear your comments on our Phase 2 plans by completing the engagement survey that is open. You know your area better than anyone and your views on these plans are really important in helping to shape the final designs. This opportunity will remain open until 23:59 on Sunday 13th December 2020. After this time, we will review all the feedback and consider ways in which the designs can be improved.
