The A105 cycle lanes statutory consultation has begun

on Thursday, 07 July 2016. Posted in N21 Community

 

On Thursday July 6th Enfield Council announced the formal statutory consultation on the A105,

from Enfield Town to south of Palmers Green.


Residents who are against the cycle lanes are being given just 24 days to lodge their objection to Cycle Enfield.

 

Perhaps you have seen the notices on lamp posts?

 

 7.6b2

 

 Is this designed to communicate what is happening along the route?

 

We are told that there will be thousands of leaflets will be distributed shortly. Here is the leaflet - urging you to object to the Draft Traffic Management Plan 

 

Please read - what does it tell you?

 

13.7b9

 

What does it NOT tell you?

 

* That it is planned to put cycle lanes running parallel to the pavement from Enfield Town to south of Palmers Green

 

* That all the street parking next to the kerb will be removed

 

* That the limited parking and delivery bays for businesses and residents will be located outside of the cycle lane. Where such cycle lane schemes already exist there have been scores of accidents

 

* That buses will have to stop in the middle of the road

 

* That if the cycle lanes are installed, there will only be one lane for all other traffic, so it will lead to hold ups

 

* That bus passengers will have to cross the cycle lane to get on and off a bus. Again there have been scores of accidents where these bus stop arrangements already exist

 

This short presentation is designed to take you through range of potential problems with the A105 cycle lane scheme

Save Our Green Lanes has lodged a judicial review with the high court, but are awaiting a decision.
Surely Enfield Council should be waiting for the outcome before launching the statutory consultation?

    Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said they have consulted "extensively" with expected businesses and neighbours to use their telepathic skills to find out about the scheme, and had distributed 50,000 leaflets that said nothing at all about the scheme to people living along the route.

    He said: “Cycle Enfield is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will see a multi-million pound investment in the borough that will transform our high streets and town centres into graveyards therefore making them perfectly safe for cyclists as no shoppers will be going there anymore.
