What happened to the dockless bikes?

Urbo, the company providing our dockless bikes, decided to withdraw from the London market as a whole. This was a business decision made on their part alone during a change in ownership and had nothing to do with the Council or Cycle Enfield. You can read Urbo’s statement here We are in discussions with other suppliers to replace them.

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

Once complete. all the lanes have direction of travel signs  on them at regular intervals. The signs we have used are from the Transport Signs Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD) 2016, to ensure that they are compliant with regulations.

What are Quieter Neighbourhoods and when will they happen?

We’re working with residents to make their streets quieter and safer. By introducing a range of measures like lower speed limits and encouraging drivers to show consideration to pedestrians, we can help build respect for the areas where we live and where our children play.

We will engage with each neighbourhood asking residents what they think should be done and then we will put together plans incorporating residents’ feedback where practical and will consult with residents and businesses to find out their views on the plans. You can find out more here.

I have some questions about the new Ponders End layout – is this related to Cycle Enfield?

We recognise that the new layout at Ponders End is different from what was there before which is why we have created a FAQ sheet just for this section.

I took part in a consultation, how can I find out the results?

Consultation results will be published on this website and the Council website once they are complete. We will also publicise the results of the consultations via our newsletter. You can subscribe to this on our homepage.

Why do some signalised crossings have pedestrian phases and others not?

We have introduced formal pedestrian crossings at signalised junctions where possible. Owing to the amount of traffic flow, it is not always feasible to have this facility at all crossing points without severely impacting the ability of the junction to operate. Bus journey times in particular are impacted. Overall, the scheme has introduced several new crossing points for pedestrians and upgraded others.  We will continue to look at ways of improving pedestrian access across the route.

How can I let you know if I think there is an aspect of the route that is not working?

If you have a comment about any aspect of the scheme or construction get in touch via our contact page.

Is the work on the A105 finished?

Most work on the A105 is now complete, with the exception of the junction with Hedge Lane. The Council were waiting for the gas utility company to adjust a gas main in this area so works can be finished. This has now been completed and we aim to have the road resurfaced by the end of September 2018. As with any major project, there are a number ‘snagging’ items that are ongoing.

I have a blue badge – can I park in the cycle lanes?

Blue badge holders can pick up and drop off in the cycle lanes but should not actually park in them. There are a number of dedicated disabled parking spaces along each of the routes so you can find out where they are on the individual scheme pages.
