Re: [greenwichcyclists] Thames Cycle path
- Dear Liz
Thank you for your comments. You may have seen some of the previous
correspondence about the opening of Woolwich Arsenal (the section
immediately east of the Waterfront). We are working hard, with Greenwich
Cyclists, the council and the Development Agency to get this section opened
as soon as possible - some outstanding issues re. construction of some
buildings and new pier at western end of site.
The signing for the Thames Cycle Route has not yet been installed by
Greenwich Council. My understanding is that the route will be signed within
the next two months. The signs that you followed (red stickers) are a very
interim, stop gap measure until the proper signing is installed.
The old Cubow site (Mast Pond Wharf?) immediately to the west of the
Woolwich Ferry is due for redevelopment. In the long term the site will
incorporate a riverside walk/cycle way with bridges over the two drawdocks
on the site. We are currently talking to the developer, architect about
introducing an interim site. We had a site visit early last week and
Greenwich Council are preparing a cost/design for the interim route.
Hope this answers your questions.
