Yet more roadworks are looming for Tolworth’s greenway, and could include a new £110,000 crossing point.

After Kingston Council asked residents what changes they would like to see to the £3.1m scheme, officers have drawn up a new report outlining 11 potential alterations.

The most significant is a new, signalled pedestrian crossing, which under a “worst-case” scenario could cost up to £110,000.

Maltreated Italian cypress trees, which died off earlier this year, are to be replaced at the expense of contractor North Midland Construction.

But Surbiton councillor Malcolm Self said: “If we plant another load of Italian cypresses in a year’s time and they all die again, we’re going to look pretty stupid.

“They [Transport for London] say we can’t have a deciduous tree because it drops leaves. They don’t want to have to face the challenge of clearing leaves.”

Cypress trees were planted but failed to thrive, and will now be replaced

Changes to parking spaces in the Broadway are also among the plans, which will be sent to residents for another round of consultations.

Proposed alterations will come before councillors at a meeting next Wednesday, November 5, at Dysart School from 7.30pm.
