The responsibility for transport in London is devolved to the Mayor of London and Transport for London (TfL), and decisions on cycling and walking schemes in Enfield are a matter for the borough and for TfL. In 2020/2021 the Department provided over £100 million of funding to support active travel in the capital, and its financial support to TfL over the period from May to December 2021 includes a further £100 million for active travel.

The Department for Transport is investing an unprecedented £2 billion in active travel schemes in England over the course of this Parliament. This is the biggest ever boost for cycling and walking. The funding will be spent on a wide range of measures, as set out in the Prime Minister’s July 2020 Gear Change plan.
