Planned roadworks

Raynes Park Enhancements - West Barnes Lane

The following has been received from Merton Council, concerning works to the pavements both sides of West Barnes Lane, between the junction with Coombe Lane and the railway bridge, close to Waitrose.

Dear Resident / Businesses, 

This letter is to inform you of the Council’s intention to improve the street scene in West Barnes Lane between Coombe Lane and Camberley Avenue. It is proposed to carry out these improvement works starting week commencing 6 January 2014 and it is anticipated that this will take approximately 2 weeks to complete, providing no unforeseen circumstances occur. 

Following discussion with the Raynes Park Association * (RPA), it has been agreed that the proposed works will include: 

·           Break out the existing bitmac surface on the west side footpath and replace with grass. In addition, a hard standing will be constructed between the grass area to provide pedestrian access into Cranleigh House.

·           Remove all concrete bollards, existing trees/planters and plant 8 new trees within the grassed area.

·           Relocation of lamp column (001) and improve foothpath lighting.

·           Minor paving and kerb improvements where necessary. 

To ensure that works are carried out as quickly as possible, it will be necessary for you to refrain from parking on sections of West Barnes Lane at various times of the day. “No parking” signs and cones will be in place to indicate the areas where parking is prohibited. 

These works will inevitably involve somedisruption, however we will endeavour to keep this to a minimum and apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.  

If you require any further information, please contact Gary Marshall on 020 8545 3848 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
