Fallen Tree Causes Traffic Chaos

There is major traffic distruption in Worcester Park this afternoon due to a fallen tree outside St Matthias Catholic Church at the top of Central Road.

Pedestrians and motorists had a miraculous escape when high winds sent the tree crashing across Cheam Common Road, destroying a bus shelter as it fell just after 3pm this afternoon.

The road is completely blocked and emergency services are in attendance.

Miracle nobody was hurt as there is nearly always someone at the bus stop & traffic in the road!

More bus chaos - not caused by a fallen tree this time but by flood defence work. From 23 July - until early September (could that mean Christmas!?), the S3 bus route will change to run in two sections through Worcester Park. More details on Transport for London's website: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/livetravelnews/realtime/buses/S3_A4.pdf  Despite the disruption, the works should bring some peace of mind to those living nearby, who won't have to worry so much about their homes getting flooded. The water was looking rather high the other day after a downpour ...

On a slightly more positive note re the S3 bus, Worcester Park residents can now take it directly to Tesco and Kimpton Industrial park as it has been permanently rerouted along another section with new bus stops installed: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/livetravelnews/realtime/buses/Route_S3_A4.pdf
