A111 Cockfosters to Hadley Wood
Convert the footway along the A111 Cockfosters Road to shared use between the entrance to Trent Park and Waggon Road. This would link with the existing segregated cycle track from Cockfosters tube station to Trent Park and to Sustrans Route NCN 12 and Hadley Wood train station. It would allow residents in new developments along Cockfosters Road and the large planned development within Trent Park to cycle to both stations and beyond.
The A111 is narrow and busy, with insufficient room to overtake a cyclist safely if there is oncoming traffic. Motorists can be aggressive and pass cyclists very closely, so only the bravest cyclists use this road. During morning and evening commutes there are long queues of traffic, making it difficult and unpleasant to use the road on a bicycle.
The footway on the west side of the road has very few pedestrians and is wide enough to allow dual use or be upgraded to segregated use. It also has dropped kerbs to allow cyclists to cross side roads.
