Ambitious plans for Tolworth Broadway take shape

Council unveils scheme to revitalise Tolworth Broadway.

Phase one of the £2.1 million scheme will have three key elements:

  1. Removing the central barriers creating a street layout that removes the dominance of vehicles and makes it easier for pedestrians to cross the road at any point they choose,
  2. Creating a Greenway transforming the central reservation into an eye-catching, uncluttered space where people can walk and cycle, and
  3. The Green Bowl Providing road-level pedestrian crossings and improving the footbridge over the A3 to create a more welcoming space.

Kingston Council is now inviting local residents and businesses to view the proposals, including artists impressions of the scheme, and give their feedback.

Ambitious and Tolworth Broadway,not words one would expect to see in the same sentence.

Looks like a great plan for enhancing the congestion along the Ewell Road and making access from the A3 to Surbiton and Kingston even more difficult.Shopkeepers of the Borough need to unite and rein in these crazy planners or else their businesses will wither and die as potential customers are driven away to New Malden and Wimbledon.

mojogit,

Tolworth Broadway is not an extension of the A3 - it is a residential area with a primary school, shops, flats & businesses. I live near the Broadway but prefer to go elsewhere to do my shopping as I find Tolworth Broadway depressing & I wouldn't dream of walking under the underpasses on the Tolworth Roundabout to access the station.

The plans won't make any difference to the speed of traffic along the Broadway, you may have to wait a little longer to go around the roundabout - but if the residents of Tolworth walked to the Broadway to do their shopping & used the station instead of getting into their cars to go elsewhere it would decrease the overall number of cars in the area.
