Temporary Closure of the Wandle Trail at Plough Lane – February 2023

Please note that the Wandle Trail between Plough Lane and Waterside Way has been temporarily closed. This is due to Merton Council carrying out safety works on the trees that are hanging over the pathway.

The path shown on the map below will be closed from 6-17 February 2023.

If you are walking along the Wandle Trail, you can go around the closed section via Waterside Way.

The work that the council is carrying out involves cutting back poplar and willow trees to encourage new growth, and monitor for any signs of decay. They will also be planting new trees along the trail.

Once this work is complete, further work will be taking place from the intersections on Chaucer Way up to Waterside Way. This will happen in late February.

If you regularly use the Wandle Trail, could you please share this post on social media to inform others.
