Question

A local resident has contacted me concerned about the lack of cycling infrastructure in the West of Haringey, particularly when cycling west towards Harrow and north towards Barnet. Local cyclists feel that without cycle lanes and infrastructure, the roads are less safe. What plans do you have to implement or fund infrastructure in the outer London boroughs?

As part of the Mayor's Vision for Cycling, TfL and the London Boroughs will deliver a network of Cycle Superhighways and Quietways across Greater London, including many routes in Outer London.

Haringey will benefit from Cycle Superhighway 1, which will run between White Hart Lane and Liverpool Street. This route is currently under construction and is scheduled to open in spring 2016.

There are also two routes being progressed in the Quietways programme that will run through Haringey. These routes are being developed by TfL, Sustrans and Haringey and are subject to feasibility, design and public consultation. One proposed route will run between Bowes Park to Farringdon via Finsbury Park. The other will run between Hornsey to North Finchley via Muswell Hill.  These Quietway routes are due for ongoing delivery between 2016 and 2018.

TfL officers are also working with borough officers to develop future aspirations for cycling infrastructure in Haringey and will ensure that cycle routes in the west of the borough are considered within those discussions.
