Enfield offers a superb strategic location. With excellent existing road, rail and underground networks, industrial and business bases are well connected.
There are three rail routes with the capacity to offer a ‘turn up and go’ service and the London Underground Piccadilly Line offering frequent services and now 24 hour weekend working as part of the Night Tube.
Alongside this there is an extensive road network supporting a number of bus services and via strategic routes, including the A10, linking the orbital M25 motorway to central London, and the A406 outer orbital link, providing quick access to London and the south-east.
However we are not standing still so to secure Enfield’s position as a first class business location, we are committed to the continued improvement of our transport infrastructure and highways network.
We are working closely with the rail industry to improve rail services, particularly in the east of the borough where our main focus is ensuring that the infrastructure is available to increase service frequency through projects such as the Stratford Tottenham Angel Road (STAR) branch and Crossrail 2.
Strong and improving transport links
Despite the significant economic changes which have impacted London’s manufacturing economy over the past 30 years, Enfield’s industrial base remains strong. We recognise the importance of good transport links to ensure its continued success.
Our offer at Innova Park is less than half a mile from the M25, which was recently improved between junctions 23 and 27 as part of the Highways England Managed Motorways scheme. In addition, our proposed new development at Meridian Water is adjacent to the North Circular Road (A406).
We are especially keen to ensure the stations that serve our major growth areas and industrial heartlands – Brimsdown, Enfield Lock, Ponders End and the new station we are part funding at Meridian Water – have high frequency services throughout the day. We’re working to achieve this outcome by the end of 2018 with the delivery of the STAR scheme.
This new future-proofed infrastructure will also support the delivery of the nationally important Crossrail 2 programme which will provide at least 12 trains per hour to stations in eastern Enfield and 15 trains per hour to New Southgate in the west of the borough.
On the road network, as well as pushing for improved connections and innovative approaches to deal with congestion and support new growth, Enfield, with the support of Transport for London, is delivering the £42 million Cycle Enfield programme to make cycling a natural choice for residents and visitors alike.
