Local Implementation Plan (LIP)
LIP targets for Enfield
Each borough has set targets in their LIP against the Mayor's Transport Strategy outcomes - we track and report on progress against these targets in the LIP3 MTS outcomes borough data pack.
For example, the car ownership in the borough was 127,874 in 2017. The LIP target to reduce car ownership by 2021 is 124,200.
Residents in Enfield made an average of 708,000 trips each day between 2015 and 2018 by:
- Car and motorcycle: 46%
- Underground/DLR: 6%
- National Rail and Overground: 12%
- Bus/Tram: 12%
- Taxi/Other: 1%
- Cycle: 2%
- Walking: 28%
We also work with boroughs to encourage more cycling. We recorded 11,033 daily cycle trips on average starting in Enfield between 2015 and 2018.
Funding for your borough
We provide funding to boroughs and local communities for transport improvements in your local area.
Streetspace for London
We are working with your borough to widen pavements at town centres and transport hubs, create temporary cycle routes on our transport network and create low traffic neighbourhoods.
We are working with boroughs to reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries from all road collisions to zero by 2041. They are responsible for enforcing safe speeds on their roads, as well as leading community programmes to encourage using roads safely. Find out more about Vision Zero.
In 2017 there were 130 individuals killed or seriously injured in Enfield. Our target for 2022 is to reduce this number to 68.
What we're working on in Enfield
- We consult local communities on a range of projects every year - search on the TfL Consultation Hub
- Find out about major works and events near you
- See some ongoing TfL improvements and projects in or near Enfield
Work now going on in your borough includes:
- Mini-Hollands - the borough's £30m investment will create joined-up local networks that encourage more people to cycle while making it easier to walk
- Step-free access - Cockfosters will be made more accessible in 2020
- Piccadilly line upgrade - new signalling systems and a fleet of newly designed, high-capacity, walk-through, air-cooled trains are being added on the Piccadilly line first, with the Bakerloo, Central and Waterloo & City lines to follow
Bus network changes
From time to time - after consulting the public - we alter bus routes to reflect changing patterns in demand. We also make temporary changes, often because of road works. See the latest bus changes.
Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)
To improve air quality the ULEZ will extend to parts of Enfield from October 2021.
