Safety concerns have been raised about the planned cycling and walking path connecting New Malden station to Raynes Park
The Lib Dem Focus team has spoken to lots of residents across New Malden about the scheme and it is clear that the Council’s proposal to have pedestrians and cyclists on a shared path is unacceptable.
Residents who live in houses backing onto the route along the railway line have expressed concern to the Focus team about possible anti-social behaviour and the potential for a greater security risk to their homes especially when the lights are off at night.
Local campaigner Simon James said, “While we welcome this new route which is needed, it is clear that the Council needs to address the concerns of residents. We are calling on the Council to implement segregation and ensure proper security on the route.”
