Though not strictly a Crossfields Green issue, those of you that use Ha’Penny Hatch Bridge to Greenwich may know that our friends at Thames Tideway – builders of the £4.2bn super sewer folly – plan to divert the approach to the bridge from the Greenwich side onto a path close to the railway arches in the spring.
They are building the diversion now and users can clearly see that the route they will force us to use is far too narrow, bends awkwardly and has raised concrete sides that will make this section of Quietway 1 deeply unpopular at best, and probably very unsafe and unpleasant at worst. It will certainly force cyclists and pedestrians into conflict.
We have complained about this – it’s a very poor start to the construction process but we need as many people as possible to make an impact now, before it’s too late to change.
Please complain to the Tideway Helpdesk. Call 08000 30 80 80 (24hr) email email@example.com or write to Freepost Tideway.
