Revised plans for the A105 were unveiled at an exhibition on May 19th, in Palmers Green Library.
Here is a link to the drawings on the Cycle Enfield website
Members of the Save Our Green Lanes team have been through the drawings, to assess what changes have been made as a result of the consultation, Click on the image below to view the guide.
Did you make it to Cycle Enfield Exhibition of designs for the A105 (Green Lanes) Cycle Corridor, which was held at The Fox in Palmers Green in July?
No? Well despite Enfield Council being aware that there is a great deal of consternation surrounding the Green Lanes proposals, the designs are NOT ON PUBLIC DISPLAY THROUGHOUT THE CONSULTATION PERIOD.
See the designs in the park
If you go to either the Broomfield Park Festival or the Enfield Town Autumn Show they will be display.
The only way you can see the designs is on the Cycle Enfield website:

When viewing the drawings and the ‘key points for each drawing’ please be aware that there are a large number of omissions
- You won’t for example find Winchmore Hill Broadway
- Nor will you be told that it is proposed to remove all the on-street parking on the west side of Winchmore Hill Broadway between Compton Road and Winchmore Hill Broadway. Instead you are told that:
”Retail parking and loading provided in the vicinity of Compton Road on the A105 with buffer strip to protect cyclists, as well as parking on Compton Road itself”
- Nor will you be asked to comment on the removal of all the on-street parking along the high street in Palmers Green between Hazelwood Lane and Lodge Drive – that’s because they have ‘forgotten’ to include this section of Green Lanes in the consultation questionnaire.
- A number of bus stops are ‘missing’, including this important bus stop near the Intimate Theatre.
