Answered By:

TfL's research shows that the propensity for people to cycle to work tends to reduce beyond a journey of approximately 45 minutes. On this basis, there are no current proposals for CS1 to be extended further north beyond Tottenham. 

However, I am delighted that the London Borough of Enfield has been awarded up to £30m as part of my Mini Hollands programme and will be using the funding to substantially improve cycle safety and connectivity in the area.
