It is named The Broadway (Cheam) for a short distance before changing name to Malden Road. After a mile, it comes to a crossroads with the A24 London Road in North Cheam. It changes name to Cheam Common Road. It runs into Worcester Park, and after an S-bend in the road, it becomes Central Road (Worcester Park), and it runs down the hill before exiting the borough.
