Tolworth Broadway greenway outcry
Its back to the drawing board for Kingston Council after a meeting about regenerating Tolworth caused outcry.

The main aim of the talk between business owners and the council was to discuss proposals to regenerate Tolworth.

One of the ideas being put forward is a walkway to link the main high street to the station. A green gavelled strip would run through the centre of the broadway replacing the barriers.

It would continue across the main roundabout and continue up to the station. Transport for London is providing a lump sum of money to help.

However the rep from David West Landscapers, who have been commissioned to complete the project – came in for some stiff criticism when he suggested people would be able to use the middle of the broadway as a walkway.

The issue of safety, especially amongst children and the elderly, have proved a sticking point and the plans may have to be reassessed.
