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 the Department for Transport (DfT) Active Travel Fund (ATF) Tranche 2 which is administered 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.

  • A statutory consultation on the draft traffic orders for this project was undertaken in late 2021, the project was granted approval in February 2022, and construction began in May 2022.

    We are now proposing changes to two aspects of the traffic orders which relate to:

    • a modal filter at the junction of Shaftesbury Road with Bull Lane, and
    • a bus gate at the southern end of Bull Lane.

    All the changes proposed can be seen on the drawings accompanying the draft traffic orders, found in the document library section on the right-hand side of the project page.

    The main changes, which do not affect the purpose of the previous proposals, are summarised below:

    • Shaftesbury Road
      • Change from a modal filter to a point closure that allows westbound vehicles to turn right from Shaftesbury Road into Bull Lane
      • Footway buildouts at both the north and south corners of the junction of Shaftesbury Road with Bull Lane
      • Removal of the previously proposed on-street parking bay at the west side of Bull Lane and provision of an on-street parking bay of the same length at the east side of Bull Lane
      • Removal of the single on-street parking bay at the west end of Shaftesbury Road and introduction of loading restrictions
    • Bull Lane
      • Relocation of the bus gate approximately 20 meters further north
      • Change from planters at the bus gate to carriageway buildouts
      • Removal of short sections of on-street parking bays immediately north and south of the newly proposed bus gate location

    Before completing this consultation form please make sure you read the information provided on the project page and the draft traffic orders here which include the drawings of the proposed changes.

    We also suggest you first read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) that can also be found on the project page.
