Cycle lane in Blackhorse Village

The Mini-Holland programme is part of the Mayor's Healthy Streets agenda to help Londoners use cars less and walk, cycle and use public transport more. It specifically addresses the demands of growth in outer London.

Mini-Hollands have features that make cycling feel safer and more convenient. The programme targets people who make short car journeys in outer London that could easily be cycled or walked instead.

More than a third of the schemes are now complete or under construction. The remaining schemes are at the design or consultation stage.

All schemes are led by the boroughs and are consulted on locally once designs have been developed. We will consult on schemes that affect the TfL Road Network (red routes).

The boroughs

More than 90 schemes have been proposed by the three Mini-Holland boroughs. They include a range of innovative improvements for cyclists:

  • Cycle Enfield: segregated cycle routes are being built on the A105 Green Lanes and the A1010 Hertford Road. A network of Cycleways use quiet back streets to link key destinations and corridors. Enfield town centre will be redesigned to make it pleasanter and safer to walk and cycle around. Cycle storage hubs are planned at Enfield Town and Edmonton Green stations. See the Cycle Enfield website.
  • Go Kingston: the area around Kingston station is currently being transformed and will link to a number of planned, high-quality cycling routes. A new segregated cycle route under construction on Wheatfield Way will eventually link Kingston to Surbiton. New cycle routes will also be developed on Kingston Hill, and between New Malden and Raynes Park. See 'Go Cycle' on the Kingston Council website.
  • Enjoy Waltham Forest: a fully segregated route along Lea Bridge Road has been developed and is currently under construction alongside a range of measures to improve cycling throughout residential areas and introduce low-traffic neighbourhoods. Cycle hubs have been introduced for major stations within the borough, including Walthamstow Central, Leyton, Leytonstone and Wood Street. See the Enjoy Waltham Forest website.

All three boroughs have complementary programmes to go along with the new physical infrastructure. These include cycle training, cycle roadshows, bike maintenance courses and cycle parking.
