We will be joined by Transport for London to provide an update on the plans for Crossrail 2.

The Leader of Merton Council, Councillor Stephen Alambritis will be at the meeting to take your questions.

Healthwatch Merton will also provide an update on their activities since they last came to the forum.

We will also revisit the issues that were raised at the last meeting.

The notes from the Wimbledon Community Forum meeting on 22 September are now available from our website at:

Also on the website are copies of the presentation on Crossrail 2 and the briefings on cycling and encouraging businesses to be energy efficient.

The Crossrail 2 consultation discussed at the meeting has now commenced and will run until Friday 8 January 2016. In the Merton, Crossrail 2 is proposed to serve Wimbledon, Raynes Park and Motspur Park stations. The proposals also include a tunnel portal north of the Wimbledon station at Gap Road, a depot and stabling facility and a shaft further to the north at Weir Road, and a facility to reverse trains south of the station at Dundonald Road. Transport for London is inviting comments relating to:
• Station locations, entrances and exits
• Shaft locations for the tunnelled section of the scheme
• Construction sites required to build and operate the tunnelled section of the scheme
