A petition to the Council from local residents has led to approval being given for a new crossing on the Malden Road outside St John’s Church Hall.
In addition the Mayor’s Transport office have asked for a review of the entire stretch of the Malden Road from Worcester Park station through to the Plough, and beyond, to look at what other improvements can be made.
Local Conservative campaigner, Jason Hughes, said:
It’s good to hear that when local residents raise issues then our Council responds to it. A new crossing on Malden Road will definitely improve road safety and is to be welcomed.
