Our Mini-Holland programme has awarded £30m each to three outer London boroughs - Enfield, Kingston and Waltham Forest - to help them create a network of cycle routes. This investment will also allow them to improve the streets and public areas along these routes for everyone. These schemes should be operating by March 2021.
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.
More than 90 schemes have been proposed by the three Mini-Holland boroughs. They include a range of innovative improvements for cyclists:
Cycle Enfield: the town centre will be redesigned, with new segregated cycle routes linking key destinations and corridors. The A105 Green Lanes segregated cycle route is currently under construction. 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.
Go Kingston: the area around Kingston station is currently being transformed and will link to a number of planned, high-quality cycling routes. Portsmouth Road has a new segregated cycle route and improvements along the banks of the Thames have made the public spaces more attractive. The one-way segregated cycle lane on St Mark's Hill was finished in April 2017. 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.
