The Chase footpath and cycle lane are used by lots of people.
Parents and children cross the cycle lane as they come in and out of Wimbledon Chase Primary School, and the whole area is busy at school start and finish times.
Over the years there have been a number of collisions and 'near misses' between cyclists and pedestrians. On Wednesday 14 July 2021 a child in Reception was hit by a bike. Fortunately he's okay but it highlights that more should be done to reduce the risk of future incidents.
We want Merton Council to take action to improve safety along the Chase.
We the undersigned call on Merton Council to take necessary action to 'Make the Chase Safe' for pedestrians and cyclists.
