Tolworth Broadway is set for an exciting new look and feel that puts pedestrians and shoppers at its centre. Particular attention is being paid to improving Tolworth Broadway as a high street and to balancing the priority between pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicular traffic by creating a more inviting and friendly environment and reducing traffic speeds.
The “Greenway” project, part of the Mayor’s Great Outdoors initiative, will deliver extensive public space improvements and address the key issues identified through previous consultation with the local community over the last few years. The project aims to revitalise the Broadway to become a thriving place for people to enjoy and use.
After two years of planning and consultation with residents and local groups, Transport for London (TfL) has pledged £2.1 million to build the scheme, with an additional £1 million coming from Kingston Council. 'Tolworth Times' newsletters have been distributed to residents and businesses in the wider Tolworth area to inform and update them about the scheme. These can be seen at the bottom of this page.
The Greenway scheme will stretch along Tolworth Broadway from the junction with Ewell Road, across the A3 roundabout to Kingston Road, outside the Charrington Bowl.
A series of exhibitions were held throughout November 2011, allowing people to find out more about the scheme. The plans were approved at a meeting of the South of the Borough and Surbiton Neighbourhood Committees on 15 December.
