Dear Mr Gahagan

Our ref: FOI-1329-1819/GH

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 13 August 2018 concerning LB Haringey’s LIP Major Scheme on White Hart Lane which supports the Mayor of London’s objectives to promote active travel and create healthy streets..

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that we do hold some of the information you require.

There are some improvements planned for cycling as part of this scheme, however the main objective is to improve the walking environment between the station and the High Road in light of the ongoing works associated with the new football stadium.

The scheme is on the LIP Major Scheme programme and TfL is currently awaiting their final submission with supporting evidence before allocating any further funding. In the meantime a Healthy Streets Check has been carried out which is detailed below. If you require further details about the design you may wish to contact the borough directly, as they are responsible for developing the design and managing delivery of the project.

We have been unable to identify any other documents or correspondence relating to the impact on cycling for this scheme. As stated the borough have yet to submit their supporting information in terms of Business Case / Final designs so we are not in position to either comment on, or share it, as we have not received it.

The scheme is led by LB Haringey, so you may wish to submit your request to them, as they are best placed to reply.

If this is not the information you are looking for please do not hesitate to contact me.

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
