A controversial cycling scheme has been given a new name.
The £30milion scheme, formerly known as mini-Holland, will now be called ‘Cycle Enfield’ as public consultation is set to begin.
The scheme has been at the centre of a heated debate between shopkeepers and cyclists with sceptics raising concerns over proposed cycle lanes through Enfield Town and Palmers Green high street.
The £30 million comes from Transport for London, with Enfield being only one of three boroughs to receive the money.
Enfield Council’s cabinet member for environment Councillor Chris Bond said: “We attracted significant investment into our borough and this is a huge opportunity for us to revolutionise cycling in our borough.
“We think the name Cycle Enfield sums up exactly what our aspirations are and is a great name for this huge ongoing project.
“Enfield Council is absolutely committed to improve our cycling network, transforming our borough for residents and get more people on their bikes, and Cycle Enfield will be integral to that process.”
The council has already brought in schemes to improve cycling such as creating greenways to enable people to travel safely around the borough through parks and on quiet roads, free training for children and adults, cyclist awareness for HGV drivers and specialised bikes for disabled people.
A dedicated website for residents to find out more about Cycle Enfield will be on the council's website later this year.
