Crossrail 2 has now received funding for a full technical design from Central Government. If built according to proposals in last November's public consultation, Crossrail 2 would increase the frequency of trains serving New Malden.
Whilst increased frequency of trains is to be generally welcomed, there are sticking points that need to be resolved. Foremost is what to do about the current level crossing on Elm Road.
With the proposed increased number of trains, it would not be feasible to keep a level crossing, but alternative options, such as
closing the road, or
building a road bridge
come with other concerns.
What do you think?
Can road capacity in Dickerage Lane and on the High Street cope with a closure?
Is there space for a bridge?
