Dollis Valley Green Walk
Dollis Valley Greenwalk was voted for by the public to receive one of the ten grants of up to £400,000 from the Mayor of London’s Help a London Park Scheme.
The Mayor of London’s scheme, Help a London park (external link) was established to invest £6million in improving the quality and safety of London’s parks.
The Phase 1 footpath improvements are now complete and can be seen at:
Brook Farm Open space (Totteridge Ward), from Totteridge lane to Western Way
Brookside Walk (Finchley Church End and Hendon Ward) from Hendon Lane to Bridge Lane
Brent Park (Hendon Ward) from Bell Lane to North Circular Road
Footpath works (Phase 2):
Windsor open space – works currently programmed for September 2011, subject to consultation
Although the full stretch of the Dollis Valley Greenwalk has been surveyed, due to financial restrictions, some areas of footpath cannot be repaired as part of this project. Areas such as the Fursby Avenue to Dollis Road section, have been identified and will be a priority once further funding becomes available.
The next stage of works is to carry out repairs and maintenance of bridges along the length of the walk.All the bridges have been inspected and works will vary from complete replacement to health and safety works including new handrails and repair to uneven surfaces.
