In December 2017, Haringey Council secured £4.8m from Transport for London (TfL) to deliver a Liveable Neighbourhoods project (external link) for Crouch End.
Haringey was 1 of 7 boroughs to successfully secure funding at the time; Crouch End was chosen after being identified by TfL in June 2017 as being on an important strategic cycling route from Wood Green to Kentish Town. This demonstrated a need to invest in cycling infrastructure in the area, making cycling through and within Crouch End safer.
TfL’s Liveable Neighbourhoods programme supports long-term schemes that encourage walking, cycling and the use of public transport.
Haringey Council’s Liveable Crouch End project provides an excellent opportunity to achieve a significant shift away from car use and to progress the Council’s cycling and walking aspirations in the area, as well as making the area cleaner, greener and nicer for the people living, working and visiting Crouch End.
