Greater London Authority selects suburbs to be funded through 'mini-Holland' scheme

Three boroughs – Enfield, Kingston and Waltham Forest – have been selected for full mini- Holland status, receiving up to £30 million each for changes. Among others, these changes will include the creation of cycle hubs, segregated cycle superhighways as well as traffic-calming measures focused on improving cycling in residential areas.

The other finalists Bexley, Ealing, Merton, Richmond, and Newham will also receive support to implement similar measures.

The mini-Holland scheme focuses on improving conditions for cyclists, but the Greater London Authority expects it will also transform significant parts of each winning borough’s public realm, cut overcrowding on public transport and reduce traffic congestion, pollution and parking pressures.
