Update 10 March 2021
Enfield Council received funding from Highways England in early 2020 to explore the feasibility of this route and start to create a series of designs.
Subsequently, we met with key stakeholder groups in February 2020 to hear their views and understand local insights and comments on the plans, including the alignment and design of the route. A Stakeholder Workshop Summary Report is now available to download via the document library on the right-hand side of this project page. The feedback received informed the concept plan that was used to help secure further funding from Highways England towards delivery of this project.
Since then Highways England have not released further funding to progress the project and have confirmed that funding will not be available in the financial year 2021-2022. However, both Highways England and Enfield Council continue to have a common interest in delivering the project in the future, and the project remains on Highways England list as something that they would like to progress.
To that end, we are continuing to progress the development of the design until further funding is secured in the future. When Highways England provides this funding, further engagement with the local community will occur.
