A new cycle route running from Camden to Tottenham Hale is one of six that has been announced by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
The 8km route would connect the two areas, and cover seven junctions identified as among the 73 with the worst safety records.
Details of the route’s path are still being finalised, however £142million is set to be invested in the new routes.
City Hall expects around 75 percent to be segregated routes on main roads, and 25pc on quieter back streets.
Figures from the Mayor shows that cycling grew by almost 10pc in 2016.
