As explained on our

Enfield Green Party want a Borough wide default 20mph speed limit on all
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.
