As previously detailed, changes to the Wandle cycling quietway include a new pathway across the top of Wandle Meadows to Garfield Park (completed) and a new, wider bridge over the river at the Garfield Park entrance (currently under construction).

Plans to introduce lighting to the route are now also well under way, with lamp posts being installed at regular intervals along the stretch of path between Plough Lane and Earlsfield. The lights will be motion activated to reduce negative impact on wildlife. Further lighting in the form of bollards (also with motion sensors) is planned for the stretch of pathway just north of Plough lane and down to Wandle Meadows.
