North Middlesex Hospital Active Travel Improvements

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

Enfield Council are proposing to implement an active travel route along Bull Lane N18 in the Upper Edmonton ward, funded by Transport for London (TfL).

The aim of this project is to provide a continuation of the recently implemented Cycleway 1 extension (‘A1010S to North Middlesex Hospital Cycle Route’ project – for more information please visit the project page here) and a future connection with Cycle Superhighway 1 (CS1) in Haringey.

The total length of the proposed active travel route will be approximately 0.5km. It will extend from the A406 North Circular Road underpass at Bull Lane to the Enfield borough boundary at the southern end of Bull Lane.

The proposals feature a two-way segregated stepped cycle track on the northern part of Bull Lane (up to the junction with Wilbury Way), new zebra crossings on Bull Lane and Wilbury Way for pedestrians and people who cycle, a bus gate at the southern end of Bull Lane, a camera-enforced modal filter at Amersham Avenue and a standard modal filter at Shaftesbury Road.

The proposed interventions will:

  • Deliver a key active travel link which will provide improved access for key workers and visitors travelling to North Middlesex Hospital.
  • 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 part of Bull Lane south of its junction with Wilbury Way and Bridport Road, in order to encourage active travel. This can result in some motor vehicle drivers having to use different routes to access their destination.
