Wimbledon station and town centre is in need of a better pedestrianised public realm. Major arterial roads and train tracks form barriers that fragment the town centre and local communities.
The introduction of Crossrail 2 provides an exciting opportunity to address these issues, improving the station operation and the local town centre.
Our proposal presents short, medium and long term aspirations for Wimbledon town centre to form part of Merton Council’s area masterplan.
Short term, a new public realm is created with pedestrianised streets that offer a healthier and more pleasant environment for local residents alongside users of the station.
Long term, the masterplan provides improvements to the station area through the integration of Crossrail 2 alongside a major mixed-use over station development.
