New Malden to Raynes Park

About the New Malden to Raynes Park

Go cycle logo


This Go Cycle route proposes to open up a green route to encourage walking and cycling between the boroughs of Merton and Kingston.
The new 1.2km walking and cycling path from New Malden to Raynes Park will open up a direct and entirely traffic-free route between New Malden Railway Station and Raynes Park Recreation Ground.

The path will 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 for pedestrians and cyclists will be improved.
