Barnet Cycleway: consultation on a new walking and cycling route

This consultation has now closed.

We would like to thank the 372 participants who took part in this consultation. The full written consultation report can be downloaded here.

What will happen next?

As a result of the consultation we have put forward a series modifications and recommendations. A summary of these can be found here.

The findings and recommendations will be reported to the Chipping Barnet and Finchley and Golders Green Area Committees in early 2020 before a final decision is made.

If approval is given to the recommendations we will implement a six-month trial. The measures will not be permanent, and temporary structures will used, such as planters with trees, shrubs, etc. The outcome of the six-month trial and any comments received during the trial period will be discussed with Ward Members and inform whether the temporary measures will then become permanent. Only then will the remaining parts of the Cycleway route be installed.

Overview

You and others in your area have a unique opportunity to benefit from Transport for London (TfL) funding to improve walking and cycling routes between Hornsey and North Finchley.

We want to hear your views on our proposals that will transform streets in the borough. The improvements will help provide a future Cycleway between Alexandra Park in The London Borough of Haringey, through quiet streets and over the North Circular into The London Borough of Barnet; ending at North Finchley High Road A1000 amongst a busy parade of shops and cafes.

Background

The proposals are an important part of the Mayor of London Transport Strategy and Barnet’s ambition to get more people to walk and cycle. The proposals are guided by the Healthy Streets Approach which aims to encourage walking, cycling and public transport and make London greener, healthier and more pleasant.

We have commissioned Sustrans Ltd as project coordinator and delivery partner for the Barnet section of the Cycleway route from Hornsey to North Finchley.

Over the last two years Sustrans, in partnership with the council, engaged with residents in specific areas along the route to better understand local travel choices and concerns, road traffic and the quality of local streets.

The proposals we are consulting on aim to address these issues, ensuring that improvements help to create an environment in which traffic is both reduced and slowed, and in which air quality is improved.

What are we seeking your views on?

This consultation is asking for your views on the draft concept designs for the route.

Specifically, we are seeking your views on:

  • the layout of proposed street alterations within the draft concept designs
  • any comments you may have on the overall draft route.
