Are refuse trucks allowed to park in the cycle lanes?

Council maintenance vehicles, including refuse trucks, are allowed to enter the lanes but only where necessary to complete their duties and not simply to drive or park. If you see any vehicle that is not using the lane appropriately please do let us know via the council’s report it function on the website www.enfield.gov.uk.

We are also discussing with colleagues ways which may allow for collections such as these to take place outside of peak commuting hours.

Why are there not signs on the new lanes telling cyclists which direction they should be going?

It’s OK having the new lanes but what about making sure people know how to use them?

Cycle Enfield takes the education of all road users extremely seriously and this forms part of our overall strategy and budget. We run guided rides along the A105 to show people how to use the new infrastructure. In addition, in 2017 alone, we ran training sessions for over 3,500 residents, both children and adults, in which road safety rights and responsibilities formed an integral part.

How many journeys have been made by bike on the A105?

The latest monitoring figures available are for the full month of July 2018 and relate to the Palmers Green area.  These showed that there were 12,317 bike journeys.
