Love Wimbledon – Reducing Impact of Construction and supporting development opportunities
Crossrail2 have announced their initial strategic plans for the new route and the potential impact on Wimbledon Town Centre. For more detail or to feed into the proposals please go to their website here.
These proposals include ideas for locations of new station entrances, a new vehicle bridge and the proposed enabling worksites.
The key dates are as follows:
Tuesday 28 October – Crossrail2 leafleting ALL businesses and homes in safeguarded area
Wednesday 3 December / Thursday 4 December – ‘drop-in’ consultation on The Piazza (public)
Friday 8 January – Consultation closes
Love Wimbledon supports the long term benefits of Crossrail2 and when complete it has the potential of bringing terrific opportunities and improvements to Wimbledon as a key business and transport hub. We will do everything we can to protect the key attributes of the town centre and ensure the construction impact is kept to a minimum for all town centre users and visitors. We are working with the local MP Stephen Hammond, The Future Merton team and Merton Chamber of Commerce to lobby for the best solution for Wimbledon Town Centre.
