Enfield starts work on A105 Mini Holland project
September 13 2016
Enfield is poised to begin work on the first phase of its £42 million Mini Holland project– starting with a segregated cycle lane on the A105.
The councillor in charge of the project says “future generations will thank us” for the bike-friendly initiatives now getting under way following an often bitter consultation period.
The borough council has however warned residents to expect disruption while works on the stretch of road, which runs from London Road through Park Avenue and onto Green Lanes, are carried out.
The green light for the works comes after calls for a judicial review were rejected, although the council says it has made some alterations to the original plans as a result of a consultation.
The council’s cabinet member for the environment, Councillor Daniel Anderson, commented: “This once in a lifetime opportunity will improve the look and feel of our environment creating better streets for Enfield and more desirable destinations for shoppers and visitors. Everyone, young and old alike, will benefit.
