Merton "Quick" Improvements tour

Recently we toured the borough with the LBM Cycling officer to show all the parts of the borough that can be addressed relatively quickly but can make a big difference to boosting the level of cycling in our communities.

These include:

  • Stanley Road and Kings Rd: add a cycling contraflow. Currently people on bicycles are forced to do a large detour.
  • Add rail channels on the railway foot bridges.
  • Wimbledon Chase cycle path, improve the access from the side streets (e.g Chaseside Avenue).
  • Remove unnecessary barriers in wide passageways.
  • Drop kerbs wherever possible and necessary to ensure easy passage.

Many more improvements were suggested.
