Many thanks for the info and the ongoing good work by Greenwich
In response to your comprehensive report circulated on Jan 14th I was
going to ask about progress on (6) Reventlow Rd gaps and progress on the
TLRN CRIPS's in Greenwich, notably the A2 across Blackheath. Maintenance
of the A2 is the responsibility of TfL and the section across the heath,
especially from Hyde Vale to Charlton Way is in an appalling condition
and a real hazard to cyclists.
Hope I can attend some meetings and rides in 2008!

Subject: [greenwichcyclists] Royal Naval College and other Planning
I'm circulating these notes, based partly on communication with
Greenwich Council's cycling officer Don Anyiam, for discussion at our
meeting on Feb 6 --Anthony
1.Shared-use path through the Naval College The Greenwich Foundation
wants a grand opening some time in March for this path, which we've all
They intend to invite Mayor Ken Livingstone to do the opening as the
path was significantly funded by LCN+/TfL. Sustrans wants to be there
too as this is completion of a significant missing link along NCN Cycle
The Foundation also wishes to invite "cycling and other celebrities",
and stage a cycling juggling show, together with a "cheese straw and
champagne" reception in one of the function halls on site.
Separately, Greenwich Council wants Mayor Jawaid to perform an opening
ceremony of the route at the start of the mayor's annual ride on April
2. Lighting & Central Plank at Mast Pond Wharf The central plank on the
wooden bridge, which had caused some cyclists to crash, is now removed.
Council's structures colleague Jeff Horsman is researching alternative
material to be installed in its place.
Council is still working on lighting improvements along the temporary
path, and at the Dockyard Estate end of the site, where a couple of
columns remain out of lighting.
3. Cycle Training
Mike Attride is the Council's Cycle Training Coordinator who says they
can always make do with more cycle trainers to instruct children and
adults, and that applicants should contact him at
4. Cycle Usage Provision: New Woolwich Civic Offices.
We're invited to take part in a meeting on at Delta Room in The Forum,
Trafalgar Road, on 4th March 2008 at 11.30am to talk about cycle
provision at the new Council Civic Offices to be built in Woolwich.
5. LCN+ Link 57: Proposed Design Works by LCC Charlie Lloyd of LCC is
due to contact us regarding solutions to the numerous point closures
along Abbey Wood Road, at the eastern end of Link 57 in Plumstead. This
arises from similar work they recently did for Hackney.
6. LCN+ Works in Eltham Area: A20 Toucan, etc Construction works for the
Toucan Crossing on the A20 at King John's Walk (LCN+ Link 60) have
finally started. Council says it has also provided cycle channels along
the stairs on the footbridge across the railway. Works to improve
passage for cyclists at Reventlow Road (requested by Paul McQuillen at
the Link 60 CRIM) is also due to commence.
7. Secure Cycle Parking at North Greenwich Station Council is in
discussion with TfL and LUL to find suitable location for secure cycle
parking at North Greenwich underground station.
Don's asking if we have any figures regarding use by cyclists, and cycle
theft at the station.
