What have Greens done?

Hoppers Road 20 mph limit


As explained on our "20's Plenty" page Enfield Green Party want a Borough wide default 20mph speed limit on all residential roads.

As a first step towards that, we campaigned for a 20 mph limit on Hoppers Road - a notorious racetrack - and the roads between it and Green Lanes. A 700-signature petition was raised easily enough from the residents and the council have now agreed to their and our request, at least partially.

The limit will be imposed only on Hoppers Road initially, while a second consultation will be carried out on the other roads. We were also opposed to conventional speed humps, as were a substantial proportion of the residents we talked to, but speed humps there will be. We are still pressing the case for sinusoidal humps - which are more suspension-friendly and don't shake adjoining houses - to be trialled in Fernleigh Road and Woodberry Avenue, the two speediest of the side roads.

For more information on sinusoidal humps see how Bromley implemented them, including a good description of their pros and cons.
There is also information from installations in West Hampstead and Islington
