Transport for London has agreed 3 million of funding for transport improvements in Enfield.

In advance of submitting a funding application, the council drew up a Local Implementation Plan, which earmarked Ponders End for renovation and proposed building new greenways. It was put together following consultation with the public, the police, transport groups and Enfield Disability Action.

The announcement follows the borough winning £30 million for cycling improvements, as part of the mayor of London’s Mini-Holland cycling shceme.

Councillor Chris Bond said: “We are determined to provide a wide range of sustainable, popular, safe transport routes through Enfield as part of our wider plans to encourage people to use healthier forms of transport and leave the car at home.

“These schemes will make a significant contribution towards that goal.”

Work will be carried out in the 2014/2015 financial year.
