Cyclists and walkers can enjoy a new path that has opened in Hadley Wood.

The £90,000 project is part of Transport for London greenways programme and was officially opened by members of Hadley Wood Association.

The footpath and cycleway is part of a national cycle route which will link Enfield Lock to Peterborough when fully completed.

Rod Armstrong, of Hadley Wood Association, said: “It is all much appreciated and there have been many compliments expressed about the path by members of the community already. I warmly thank the Sustrans volunteers for their great efforts, I am sure there will be more praises to come about the new trees.”

Bryn Lockwood, North London area manager for Sustrans, whose volunteers built the path, said: “This path is a fantastic new asset for the people of Enfield and Barnet. I’m delighted with the success of this project - to open up walking and cycling for local people’s everyday journeys.

“The path provides a lovely, non-muddy, safe, traffic free route to the station and a link in National Cycle Route 12, which when completed will provide a quiet greenway connection from the Hertfordshire countryside to National Route 1 in the Lea Valley.”
