What’s happening at Greenwich’s Thames Path?
Now spring has arrived, you might be fancying a stroll along the Thames Path. But, yes, great chunks of it around the Greenwich Peninsula are still closed. So here’s a very useful Greenwich Council map which details what’s closed and when it’s reopening (1MB PDF).
Of course, useful info like this isn’t on the council’s website, so instead I’m happy to bring you news the section by the cable car works should be open again next month, and almost all of the walkway will be back in use by July – just in time for the Olympics. It’s all on the map. Fingers crossed this comes to pass.
But there could be more disruption to come – major plans to build student accommodation and shops to the south-west of the Dome include “changes to the adopted alignment of the Thames Footpath”. Unfortunately, there’s no further details on the council’s planning website, but it sounds ominous.
