In line with my Walking Action Plan, Transport for London (TfL) actively supports schemes in both Enfield and Haringey that encourage people to switch to healthier modes of transport. In these boroughs, TfL is investing £4.7 million of Local Implementation Plan funding this financial year, which will contribute to better walking infrastructure across the boroughs, alongside other Healthy Streets improvements.

As set out in my response to Mayor’s Question 2019/20562, significant additional investment is planned for cycling and walking improvements in Enfield and Haringey. Of this, £6 million has been awarded to the Liveable Neighbourhood project in Enfield Town, which will focus on Church Street, reducing traffic dominance by narrowing the carriageway, connecting Market Square and the shopping centre, and making it safer to walk to the train station. Other planned improvements include safer junctions, easy-to-cross pedestrian routes on Cecil Road, and new 20mph speed limits on Church St, Cecil Rd, London Rd and Genotin Rd.

Haringey has also been awarded £4.8 million Liveable Neighbourhoods funding to dramatically improve conditions for pedestrian and cyclists around Crouch End town centre.
