CITY-Haringey-image

The London Borough of Haringey is a London borough, in North London.

The PTP-Cycle project will contribute to achieving strategic policy objectives for increasing the levels of cycling. The project also supports several local policy objectives to encourage a modal shift to low carbon travel, reduce congestion, improve air quality, improve health and reduce health inequalities.

Implementation sites

A target area predominately located within the western Haringey ward of Crouch End has been identified as a suitable residential area for delivering a successful PTP project in Haringey.

The scoping exercise, through the use of socio-demographic data mapping and segmentation techniques, has identified these residential areas showing the greatest potential for behaviour change, a high propensity to cycle, high car ownership and car use, access to good sustainable transport links, and a favourable topography for encouraging the take up of cycling.

Latest news!

From a target population of 5000, 3,500 residents were contacted with 71% interested in receiving travel advice leading to 2,685 information packs delivered. In addition to this, 501 people were given travel advice at local events.

Short term follow-up surveys were carried out in December 2014, 3 months after project delivery ended. Long term follow-ups are planned for summer 2015.

From those who responded to the short term follow-up these encouraging results have been produced:

  • 15% of respondents increased their number of cycling trips; from those that increased cycling trips the median increase in number of cycling trips was 3, per person per week.
  • 28% of respondents increased their number of walking trips; from those that increased walking trips the median increase in number of walking trips was 6, per person per week.
  • 19% or respondents decreased their number of car (alone) trips; from those that decreased car (alone) trips the median decrease in number of car (alone) trips was 5, per person per week.
