Lister is the Leader of Wandsworth
Council and a member for Putney's
dream of an easy link between Putney's tube and mainline stations
is one many of us share.
why I was interested in the latest comments on putneysw15.com's
the face of it a separate entrance to the mainline station
from the bridge at Oxford Road would halve the walk to East
Putney. It wouldn't quite add up to a fully-fledged transport
interchange but it would certainly make life simpler for people
switching lines at this point.
would also reduce some of the pavement congestion on the mainline
station's Putney High Street frontage.
was a scheme two or three years ago which Railtrack rejected.
The proposal however has not gone away and the council is
continuing to press for a solution.
Having completed the successful refurbishment of Putney leisure
centre the council is now in discussions with local people
on improvements to the Roehampton recreation centre.
Laverstoke Gardens facilities are wedged onto a narrow site
but there is space alongside that could accommodate a fitness
centre and perhaps an indoor children's play area.
have put up some drawings up at the centre showing what we
think is possible - if you are one of the 20,000 people a
year who use the facilities why not have a look at the plans
on your next visit - and let us know what you think.
Lots of activity on Putney Embankment this week with the sea
cadets set to move back into their newly refurbished premises
at Ashlone Wharf.
difficult to appreciate from the outside the sheer scale of
the changes that have gone on inside.
result is a terrific improvement in the accommodation for
both the sea cadets and the youth river club who will move
in after the summer.
the time the final bills have been paid the scheme will have
cost around £400,000 - this represents a substantial
investment by the council in river-based facilities for the
borough's young people.
