Our Mini-Holland programme has awarded funds to three outer London boroughs - Enfield, Kingston and Waltham Forest - to implement schemes that will transform cycling facilities and encourage more people to take to two wheels. These schemes should be operating by the end of 2018.
Mini-Holland schemes encourage more people to cycle, and cycle more often, with features that make cycling feel safer and more convenient. They also aim to improve streets and public spaces for everyone. The programme specifically targets people who make short car journeys in outer London that could easily be cycled instead.
We have awarded around £30m to each of the three Mini-Holland boroughs. A number of schemes are currently under construction with further schemes currently at 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.
More than 90 schemes have been proposed by the three Mini-Holland boroughs. They include a range of innovative improvements for cyclists:
Enfield: the town centre will be redesigned, with new segregated cycle routes linking key destinations and corridors. Cycle storage hubs are also planned at Enfield Town and Edmonton Green stations and new greenway routes will be introduced. See the Cycle Enfield website.
Kingston: a major cycle hub is planned, high-quality cycling routes will be introduced and the area around Kingston station will be transformed. Plans have been developed for a Thames Riverside Boardway, a landmark project to build a new cycle route on the banks of the river. See 'Go Cycle' on the Kingston Council website.
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 are planned for major stations within the borough, with Walthamstow Central, Leytonstone and Wood Street already complete and operational. See the Enjoy Waltham Forest website.
