As part of the Journeys and Places programme, Enfield Council is continuing to develop a network of active travel routes in Enfield to encourage more people to walk and cycle in the borough. Enfield Council is proposing a walking and cycling route from Enfield Town to Ponders End Station, which is funded by Transport for London (TfL).

Currently there are numerous active travel routes that run from north to south throughout the borough. However, there are limited east to west routes to connect the existing facilities to one another. The Enfield Town to Ponders End Station Walking and Cycling Route would help address this issue as it would connect to the walking and cycling route which has been introduced along Ponders End High Street (Cycleway 1) and the proposed Enfield Town to Broxbourne Walking and Cycling Route project via the proposed Enfield Town improvements project. Ultimately, this project would be a part of a larger east-west network to create a future strategic cycle corridor.

The proposed route starts at the eastern side of the Southbury Road / Willow Road junction and reaches Ponders End Station via Alma Road. The total length of the proposed route (subject to confirmation of the preferred alignment) is approximately 3.9 kilometres.

The proposed route aims to:

  • Provide a quieter, safer, and more pleasant route that will encourage people to use active travel modes for more of their journeys.
  • Reduce the volume of motor traffic on the section of Main Avenue outside Bush Hill Park Primary School.
  • Provide a safe cycle facility across the A10.
  • Promote cycling along car-free areas such as though Bush Hill Park and Ponders End Park.
