Enfield Borough Council has submitted its plans for a share of £100million from London Mayor Boris Johnson and Transport for London to make cycling safer

Plans to make Enfield more cycle-friendly have been submitted in the hope of winning a share of £100million.

The borough was one of eight London authorities shortlisted for Transport for London (TfL)’s ‘Mini Holland’ funding, which is expected to be split between three or four locations.

Enfield Borough Council’s suggestions for making cycling safer and more attractive for residents included the creation of protected cycle tracks along the A1010 Hertford Road and the A105 Green Lanes, and changing traffic routes in Enfield Town to create a cycle hub.

Edmonton Green roundabout would also be redesigned to keep motor vehicles and bikes separate, and a network of “quietway” routes would be introduced along low speed, low traffic roads.

London Mayor Boris Johnson and TfL are expected to announce who will receive a share of the £100m funding early next year.

The other councils on the shortlist include Merton, Bexley, Ealing, Kingston, Merton, Newham, Waltham Forest and Richmond.
