Construction is about to begin on the first part of Enfield Council's £42 million Cycle Enfield Programme, which aims to transform the borough's high streets and town centres, promote more active forms of travel and create safe and secure cycle lanes.

Works on the A105 Scheme, which will link Palmers Green and Enfield Town comes after a comprehensive consultation process that lasted over 18 months, as result of which significant changes have been made to the initial proposals.

Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said: "The Cycle Enfield Programme will see £42m of external investment into our borough. It will enable and promote more active, healthy forms of travel.

"This once in a lifetime opportunity will improve the look and feel of our environment creating better streets for Enfield and more desirable destinations for shoppers and visitors. Everyone, young and old alike, will benefit.

"Our proposals are the culmination of an extensive engagement process with residents and businesses and it's an incredibly exciting time for Enfield. Many residents recognise that this scheme is going to improve their quality of life and bring dramatic improvements to this part of the borough; I'm looking forward to seeing its implementation.

"Though there will be an inevitable degree of disruption while the works proceed, which we are doing our outmost to minimise, ultimately the benefits will hugely outweigh the temporary inconvenience.

"However as our population continues to grow, future generations will thank us for these visionary proposals."
