DANIEL GOODGER'S letter (November 6) reports little longing in March for changing Tolworth Broadway. A hard look at the handout for last month's further consultation should have reduced enthusiasm further.
The main picture (which you carried on October 9) shows a dream boulevard, free of the reality of traffic. The central strip, shown for mixed cyclist and pedestrian use, is to extend across the roundabout to the station. The sheet does not specify removal of the subways but one picture seems to show the path across without them. This would then be the only official way between crossing the A240 by M&S and by the station - but still incorporating the bridge as the sole way across the A3 itself.
Using the path would involve waiting at traffic lights to walk on to and off the roundabout each way, across three lanes of traffic more menacing than the two lanes each side by M&S. That would be a problem for the old or handicapped, as well as an invitation to some others to take risks. The chances of accidents would be far more than of muggings in the subways.
As some councillors are wedded to removing the barrier along the Broadway, pressure may be necessary before and at their special meeting on November 25 at Tolworth Girls School to get them to reject this, saving money, upheaval and even lives.
