Question

As the Cycle Superhighway to Merton will now stop at Colliers Wood rather than South Wimbledon (as originally proposed), will TfL funding be made available in future to complete the link along Merantun Way so that there is a full cycle route through to Morden?

Although it is not possible at this stage to extend the superhighway to South Wimbledon, this does not preclude the possibility of extending the route there in future.

TfL has committed funding to designing a cycling link between the end of the Cycle Superhighways route at Colliers Wood, and the Merantun Way junction with Morden Road. Construction of any future extensions to Morden are beyond the scope of the Cycle Superhighways project budget, although TfL has committed to work with the London Borough of Merton to explore potential funding options for additional cycling infrastructure in this area.
