Reading between the lines of the Cycle Enfield Project

A user friendly guide has been produced by SAVE OUR GREEN LANES on behalf of the concerned local residents and business owners to help you to understand the Cycle Enfield proposals, so that you can have your say on whether this cycle superhighway, along the A105, from Enfield Town to the North Circular (A406) should go ahead.

Summary of the report findings

It became apparent in drawing up this guide, according to SAVE OUR GREEN LANES, that this scheme has been drawn up by engineers who have little knowledge of the local area and local landmarks or understanding of the lifestyles of the residential ‘villages’ along the route. Priority is given to cyclists with almost no thought given to other road users, pedestrians or motorists. The drawings provided by Cycle Enfield are difficult to interpret and major errors have been uncovered which are being reported to the project team and key stakeholders. Some sections are actually missing from the documents. These include The Broadway in Winchmore Hill and the section of Green Lanes between Hazelwood Lane and Lodge Drive. The loss of one third of the carriageway to the cycle highway will require major changes and major inconvenience for residents; reduced access to adjoining roads; disruption to bus routes and bus stops and almost certainly increased congestion along the whole of the A105 rote and in adjacent roads. We hope this guide will help you to understand what is proposed along Green Lanes and whether or not these will be beneficial to you and the people living in proximity of Green Lanes, Palmers Green

Have your say, and take part in the consultation


This consultation is focused on the first scheme of the Cycle Enfield programme, the A105 from Palmers Green to Enfield Town.

Your responses will be collated into a consultation report (which you will be able to see) which the Cycle Enfield Project Board will use to inform how Enfield Council move forward with the element of the scheme.

You can provide a simple overview of your opinion on this scheme which will take just a few minutes, or you can take longer, considering individual sections of the route in detail and providing your opinion on each.
