Merton to give Wimbledon Station major facelift? [updated]
Merton Council, together with Network Rail, South West Trains and Transport for London (TfL), has committed £2.5 million to give Wimbledon town centre a facelift. The investment is intended to improve both the functionality and appearance of this key area. In addition to improvements to the station forecourt, investment will be made in the Broadway, including reconfiguration of the junction with Alexandra Road to enable a diagonal pedestrian crossing. Paving will be replaced, trees planted and new street furniture installed.
You can have your say here. We will be setting out our thoughts shortly.
UPDATE: We’ve written to Merton Council to ask why the public consultation on this major project is only 4 weeks long, when the Government’s Code of Practice on Consultation provides that “Consultations should normally last for at least 12 weeks with consideration given to longer timescales where feasible and sensible.”
This is such an important development, we need to make sure residents have a proper say.
