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.

scheme please contact the Traffic Management section on 020 8545 4869
