Proposed cycle route for Worcester Park

Proposed improvements to the footpath between Boscombe Road and Trafalgar Avenue could provide a new off-road cycle route for Worcester Park.

The proposal is to up-grade the existing footpath, by providing a 3m wide tarmac path and allowing pedestrians and cyclists to use it.

The benefit of improving the path is to encourage more journeys by bicycle and on foot. This section of path is part of a longer route that leads to the borough boundary with Merton to the north at Green Lane. Merton Council have recently up-graded their section of Green Lane to provide a good surface for pedestrians and cyclists. It is not intended to provide street lighting along the path as it is to be promoted as a daytime route only.

Residents near the route are being asked  for their comments but if you have any thoughts on this proposal you can e-mail Traffic.Postbook@sutton.gov.uk quoting reference T30086/3 by Friday 25 July 2014.

The results of this consultation will be reported to your ward councillors for consideration.
