Boris Johnson and Transport for London grants more than one million to Enfield for transport projects
Enfield will receive more than £1million from the Mayor of London to support local transport projects.
Boris Johnson has teamed up with Transport for London (TfL) to grant £147million for the next three years to projects across the capital as part of their Local Implementation Plan (LIP).
The borough will receive £250,000 for the Lea Valley Road traffic-free cycle route to encourage more and safer cycling.
The other £850,000 will be given to the Greenways programme in Enfield to provide safe and quite walking and cycling paths across the whole borough.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: “Without the London boroughs we simply couldn’t deliver the huge programme of improvements we are making to the capital's roads, open spaces and neighbourhoods.
“This funding, together with the investment through my roads and cycling plans, means the improvements being delivered in partnership with London’s boroughs is simply unprecedented.
“Safer cycling routes and better open spaces not only make our city safer but they also boost local economies encouraging people to support their local high streets.”
London’s transport commissioner Sir Peter Hendy said: “This money will have a great impact at a local level, delivering hundreds of projects that will make a real difference to the daily lives of local people and boosting local economies.
"This work is key to supporting and complementing our wider investment to improve the transport network for people who live or work in London or who are visiting the capital."
