Have your say on the latest part of our transformational Cycle Enfield Scheme.
Residents and businesses will have a further opportunity to have their say on the latest part of Enfield Council’s transformational Cycle Enfield Scheme.
A public consultation on the A1010 North scheme will start on Wednesday 3 April and run until Sunday 28 April. There will also be a public engagement event at Albany Leisure Centre in Hertford Road, on Wednesday 10 April where residents can view the plans, talk to engineers and the Cycle Enfield team and give their views.
The proposed route runs up the A1010 from Nags Head Road to Holly Road, complementing the soon to be completed scheme from Ponders End to Edmonton Green.
This consultation is the final phase of engagement for this route, with a range of events held in previous years to develop the design. All the comments made during the consultation process will be considered and the designs amended where necessary.
The scheme proposes lightly segregated cycle lanes on both sides of the road and aims to improve conditions for pedestrians including ungraded pedestrian crossings and providing loading bays for businesses.
Enfield Council’s Deputy Leader, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said: “Cycle Enfield is already delivering enormous benefits across the Borough and we are confident that the network we are developing will deliver tremendous benefits to residents and businesses while encouraging alternative modes of transport. The A1010 North scheme will be a key part of the network.
“As a result of previous consultation on this project we have already made adjustments to the initial designs and this consultation will offer a final opportunity for residents and local businesses to provide further feedback. I would urge residents to attend the public engagement event so they can find out more”.
Cycle Enfield is about transforming the Borough’s high streets and town centres and promoting more active forms of travel to improve health and reduce pollution.
The A1010 South Hertford Road scheme from Ponders End to Edmonton Green is due to finish later this Spring while the completed A105 Green Lanes scheme is already seeing 1,000’s of cycle journeys a month, with recent data showing a 52 per cent increase in cycling levels between July 2016 and 2018.
