The £30 million Go Cycle programme includes 10 development schemes to improve walking and cycling infrastructure in the borough.
In the summer of 2017 we consulted on two routes in the programme - Kingston High Street and the New Malden to Raynes Park link.
The Kingston High Street scheme includes plans to create a two-way cycle lane that extends and connects our Go Cycle scheme at Portsmouth Road directly to the town centre.
A new 1.2km walking and cycling path from New Malden to Raynes Park will open up an entirely traffic free route between New Malden railway station and the Raynes Park Recreation Ground in Merton.
The path would run along Thames Water land, parallel to the railway line, passing under the A3 Kingston by-pass and avoiding busy or lengthy alternative routes. Journey times between these areas will be significantly improved for pedestrians and cyclists.
The consultations ran from 19 June to 17 July and included a series of public exhibitions and drop-in events.
We have now published the full reports for each consultation along with a summary of the key findings.
Kingston Council’s Residents Committee agreed unanimously in November 2017 for both projects to move to detailed design and construction.
