Cycle Quietway planned for the Wandle Trail

Views are being sought on plans for a 'cycle quietway' alongside the Wandle.

Merton Council says:

As part of the Mayor’s vision for cycling we will be implementing a cycling Quietway between Clapham Common and Wimbledon funded by Transport for London.

Part of the Clapham Common to Wimbledon route follows the Wandle Trail from Trewint Street to Wandle Meadow. The Wandle Trail has been chosen as it makes an ideal Cycle Quietway which avoids conflict with motor vehicles as well as encouraging cyclists of all experiences to explore the trail.

In order to satisfy the Quietway criteria it is essential for all sections of the route to be lit and a suitable surface provided. In order to achieve this interventions are required which aim to improve the route for pedestrians and cyclists whilst appreciating the biodiversity of the Trail and having as little environmental impact as possible. Ecological surveys have been undertaken and any advice offered from the findings has been followed.

If you would like to provide feedback or have any queries regarding this scheme please contact the Traffic Management section on 020 8545 4869 or by email trafficandhighways@merton.gov.uk.
