Have your say on proposed changes on (A10) Great Cambridge Road at its junction with Bury Street and where it crosses Salmon’s Brook

Closed 13 Mar 2016

Opened 27 Jan 2016

Results Updated 8 Aug 2016

Between 27 January and 13 March 2016, we consulted on proposed improvements to pedestrian and cycle facilities on (A10) Great Cambridge Road at its junction with Bury Street, and where it crosses Salmon’s Brook.

We received a total of 51 responses and, after considering them all, we intend to proceed with the scheme as set out in the consultation documents, with the following amendment:

We will extend the island on Cambridge Terrace so that it joins the pedestrian crossing, thereby closing the gap between the two, to prevent vehicles approaching from Bury Street from using the space between the two islands as a U-turn before turning left onto the Great Cambridge Road to avoid queuing on the Bury Street approach. This will remove any risk to pedestrians, particularly school children who are at risk from unexpected manoeuvres when crossing between stationary traffic.

Subject to further investigations and design work, we plan to start construction in winter 2016/17.

Update ends

We propose to make improvements to pedestrian and cycle facilities on (A10) Great Cambridge Road:

  • At its junction with Bury Street, and
  • Where it crosses Salmon’s Brook


We are working in partnership with Enfield Council on Cycle Enfield, which is funded through our Mini-Hollands programme. Enfield Council is proposing a network of Quietways and Greenways across the borough, some of which cross (A10) Great Cambridge Road, which forms part of the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN). TfL is responsible for any proposed changes that affect the TLRN.

Our proposals aim to:

  • Address gaps in cycle routes between the east and west of the borough
  • Enhance existing facilities to benefit pedestrians and cyclists, and
  • Accommodate the predicted increase in the number of cyclists along the route
     

What we proposed

Great Cambridge Road/Bury Street junction

  • Widening the existing crossing on the southern arm of Great Cambridge Road to provide more space for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Upgrading the existing pedestrian crossing on Cambridge Terrace to a 'Toucan' crossing, for use by cyclists and pedestrians  
  • 'Countdown' facilities, which indicate the time available for pedestrians and cyclists to safely use the crossing
  • Dropped kerbs and tactile paving on the east and west pavements, and the central reservation, for safety and accessibility
  • Three new shared-use footways for pedestrians and cyclists, to link the widened crossings to a proposed Greenway

Great Cambridge Road/Salmon’s Brook crossing

  • Installing a new staggered (two-stage), 4 metre wide ‘Toucan’ crossing across Great Cambridge Road. Toucan crossings can be used by pedestrians and cyclists
  • ‘Countdown’ facilities, which indicate the time available for pedestrians and cyclists to safely use the crossing
  • Dropped kerbs and tactile paving on the north-west and south-east pavements, and the central reservation, for safety and accessibility
  • Create two new shared-use footways for pedestrians and cyclists, to link the Toucan crossing with the proposed Enfield Town to Meridian Water Quietway
  • Remove 165 metres of vegetation from the central reservation to make space for the crossing and to improve visibility for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists
     

We may also need to remove the tree situated on the nearside of the north-eastbound carriageway, which would be positioned immediately before the proposed new Toucan crossing. This would help to improve visibility for pedestrians waiting at the crossing. If it were removed, we would investigate suitable alternative locations for tree planting.

Our initial traffic modelling assessments indicate that the proposed changes can be accommodated without undue delay to any road user.
