Anti-congestion measures in Lancaster Road

Published Wednesday, 19 March 2014

Enfield Council has agreed a package of measures designed to improve traffic flow in Lancaster Road and improve access for buses and the emergency services.

Enfield Council consulted on plans to introduce waiting restrictions and parking on pavements to prevent parked cars from narrowing the road for passing vehicles and 91 per cent of the people and businesses who responded to the public consultation agreed with them.
 
The council will now carry out improvements to traffic flow and introduce waiting restrictions at the junctions of Lynn Street, Walton Street and Weardale Gardens using funding from Transport for London.
 
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Chris Bond, said: “We wanted to improve journey reliability along Lancaster Road, particularly for bus passengers and residents and businesses in the area overwhelmingly agreed with our proposals so we’ll be introducing them promptly.
 
“This is a classic case of a council listening to its residents and acting on what it has been told, so I’m delighted we can get on with implementing this scheme.”
