New Poles Line Central Road



No we haven’t been invaded by a tall black headless army; the improvements to Central Road have finally begun. The numerous poles which will soon be topped with new street lights are the first phase of the improvements to Worcester Park (and North Cheam) that have come from Boris’s Outer London Fund (the money the Lib Dems pretended Roger Roberts won for the by-election last year). 

Many will have noticed the recent road works which have been to clean out the underground channels and lay the cables for the new lights and the new CCTV which will also be going in. 

We should soon start to see many more changes including a new bus stop at Brabham Court, re-paving of pavements and parking areas, extending and replanting of green spaces and some new benches and cycle parking.

Just a thought for the future. When all the improvements to Central Road are finished can we have a nice new picture at the head of the blog please?

Having recently moved to the area - it seems to me that Worcester Park high street needs a lot more than new lights and parking bays etc. It would benefit from a decent florist, a trendy coffee shop or similar - the lovely garden shop has closed down - enough plastic bucket shops - enough charity shops - it needs upgrading - big time. More trees - it's depressing from Waitrose upwards -
Does anyone know what's going on in the park down the Old Malden end? That brings me to the fact that old malden is certainly very pretty with pond etc - what a shame that The Plough pub is being neglected SO badly - imagine that - Harvester rubbish being replaced by a more trendy and appealing and caring company.

I have heard that the land being cleared has been purchased for use as allotments.
