Haringey transport infrastructure spending (LIP) – where, what and how much

The transport consultations are arriving by the truck load. This time it’s the Local Implementation Plan (LIP). You are invited to send your comments. The notification from Haringey runs as follows –


Haringey’s Local Implementation Plan (2019-2022)

Draft for Public Consultation

Consultation runs until 31 January 2019

Dear Stakeholder,

Haringey is consulting on the new Draft Local Implementation Plan (LIP), which demonstrates how we will contribute to achieving the London Mayor’s Transport Strategy goals up to 2041.

All London boroughs are required to prepare a Local Implementation Plan outlining their proposals to implement the London Mayor’s Transport Strategy locally. This strategy prioritises investment to enable 80% of all journeys in London to be made by sustainable modes such as walking, cycling and public transport by 2041.

The LIP represents a significant investment programme for Haringey for the next three years and will help deliver the vision set out in the council’s recently adopted Transport Strategy (https://www.haringey.gov.uk/parking-roads-and-travel/travel/haringeys-transport-strategy)

The LIP covers both physical renewal and improvement of the Haringey’s transport infrastructure alongside softer measures to promote behaviour change and engage with wider safety, health and environmental objectives including improving air quality through support for more walking and cycling.

Public Consultation on the new Draft Local Implementation Plan closes on Thursday 31 January 2019. All the representations will be considered and responded to before the final LIP is submitted to Transport for London in the Spring 2019.

You can view the draft LIP and its supporting documents here:

    I vehemently object to more clutter on pavements, and that includes electric charging points. Car usage is very low in Crouch End, so let’s increase bus priority and improve pavements

      OK if you can actually get to a bus stop. Otherwise, a vehicle is essential. By the way – don’t agree car ownership in Crouch End is low. Now that the children of the thriving middle classes who moved in a couple of decades ago are grown up they want their wheels too. Therefore, in the interests of maintaining dignified front gardens a few charging points would help keep pollution down until we can all come up with a better solution to this crisis

    Here’s a thing. According to the Ultra Low Emission Vehicle Action Plan Haringey will see over 2,000 new EV charging points on our streets (or pavements) in the next 5 years.

    Pro-rata, this would see at least 150 on the streets (or pavements) of Crouch End – though in fact, if the projections contained in the report are correct, the take-up of EV vehicles will be higher here and the figure could easily be 300 charging points. That’s an average of 3 to 4 on every single street in Crouch End.

    If the government’s plans for virtually all new vehicles to be ultra-low emission by 2030 are realised, the numbers of charging points will have to mushroom thereafter. Ultimately virtually every parking space will have to have a charger.

    We’re going to have to get used to the clutter?
