Update ends

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

Removing the existing footbridge at this location, which is not accessible for wheelchair users, people with buggies and cyclists

  • 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 east and west pavements, and the central reservation, for safety and accessibility
  • Two new shared-use spaces for pedestrians and cyclists, to link the new Toucan crossing with the Hadley Wood to Enfield Island Village Greenway
     

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