On behalf of residents FERAA has campaigning for solutions to local problems for over 40 years. You can help us by joining your residents’ association.
FERAA continues campaign to stop Cycle Enfield, redirect investment to quiet ways option for safe cycling, and leave our major roads to do their job:
- But Council now installing Cycle Enfield scheme on A105 / Green Lanes - causing massive congestion and delays.
- Council still blindly insists all will benefit from narrowed major roadways! Incredible.
- Business already hit - retailers are worried at loss of customers.
- Residents fear for future of bus services when bus lanes are removed
- Pollution will not be reduced - Council's own study disprovers its claims.
- FERAA asks: who will use these lanes to justify so much carnage?
Residents report growing negative reaction to Enfield Council's unwillinginess to listen to electors. Councillors refuse to listen and debate becasue they have no arguments to justify their policies.
- Enfield Council is proceeeding now with the A105 / Green Lanes scheme - reducing the whole road to one vehicle width with a cycle track alongside: there is virtually no room for overtaking so private and emergency vehicles will have to fit in between bus services. All residents along this route and busineses will be impacted by the cycle lanes - parking will be much reduced or banned, displacing loading to side roads - if there is room there to park! That includes loading when moving home, deliveries, and taking on passengers - invalided or not.
- Emergency vehicles will have no room to speed on their way and all vehicles will have to navigate the road humps being placed all along the A105. Bus services will be slowed and the ride will be subject to constant bumping over the pointless traffic humps.
- Passengers waiting to board buses will compete with cyclists at boarding points, a sure source of danger and conflict at every bus stop, particularly at night and in bad weather.
- This plan has been accepted by Enfield Council to secure funds from the Mayor of London: Enfield roads will be the test bed for the scheme intended for all London's 33 boroughs. He has not consulted anyone - he won't conduct London-wide consultations because his plans are so damaging they would be rejected. For certain. And Enfield Council's local consultations have been notional and largely ignored when the results proved inconveniently negative for their purposes.
- The prospects for raising the level of cycling are similarly poor- commuter cyclits will just roll down the main open road and avoid the cycle lanes because they are obstructed every 400m by bus stops. And what responsible family will puts its kids by way of harm and polllution by taking them down lanes just 1 meter from heavy traffic? If there is little cycle take up the huge cost of this scheme will be for nothing.
- Safe cycling in our view means using quiet roads and tracks, leading directly from homes to schools, stations and shops. How our councillors fail to see this reality is breathtaking.
- FERAA camapigns to introduce councillors and officers to street level reality, and eschew the empty claims of lower pollution and economic benefit - none of these claims are verifiable, so can be dismissed as hyperbole.
