The railway improvements ensure sustainability, for growth without traffic gridlock

Could we use the opportunity of new parking underground to re-landscape and restore the original intention of the gardens whilst keeping most of the mature trees?

Restored and converted for public use such as a cinema or an extension to St George's School
Construction
Tunnel construction should take less than one year
Transporting spoil and construction materials by river and placing works areas far away from the town centre, will minimise disruption to residents and visitors
