Transport improvement schemes approved

Published Monday, 07 April 2014

Enfield Council has agreed a range of transport schemes including new Greenways and improvements to Ponders End which have been funded with £3 million by Transport for London.

The projects that have been agreed are in the council’s Local Implementation Plan which was put together following consultation with members of the public and partners such as the police, transport groups and Enfield Disability Action.

The plan breaks schemes into four themes covering areas such as roads and bridge maintenance, bus stop accessibility, traffic schemes round schools, cycleways and road safety  and also includes £1 million to carry out improvements to Ponders End.
 
Work on the schemes will be carried out in the 2014/15 financial year.
 
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Chris Bond, said: “These schemes will significantly improve the quality of transport schemes in Enfield and once again demonstrates our commitment to keeping the borough moving and making it as easy as possible for people to get to and from their destinations.
 
 “We are determined to provide a wide range of sustainable, popular, safe transport routes through Enfield as part of our wider plans to encourage people to use healthier forms of transport and leave the car at home and these schemes will make a significant contribution towards that goal.”
 
The Local Implementation Scheme announcement comes just weeks after the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, announced Enfield Council was to receive up to £30 million for its Mini-Holland Scheme to revolutionise cycling facilities and infrastructure in the borough.
