Works to improve the walking and cycling facilities between Greenwich and Woolwich have started. This is a Streetspace scheme to help Londoners during the Coronavirus crisis.
Until 19 September, works will take place overnight, from 21:00 to 5:00, daily. Overnight works are required to avoid an unprecedented impact on our network during regular working hours. Existing road markings will be removed and replaced with new ones in the following road stretches:
- Old Woolwich Road, between Park Row and Hadrian Street
- Trafalgar Road, between Christchurch Way and Blackwall Lane
- Woolwich Road, from Blackwall Lane to Aldeburgh Street (including Angerstein roundabout, also known as Woolwich Flyover)
These night works will involve side road closures, which will have diversions routes clearly signposted, and the use of temporary traffic lights.
From 7 September until early October, works will be carried out during the day, from 7:00 to 17:00. These will see the installation of a cycle track and signals all the way from Trafalgar Road to the Angerstein Roundabout. Lane closures will be necessary to deliver the scheme as soon as possible.
Details of what is happening can be found in the following documents:

Note – These works will also result in changes to access to the A102 at the Angerstein Road. The northbound access road will be closed and access onto the south bound slip road will be restricted (see the overview map).
