Temporary Diversion – August 2016

A temporary diversion of the Thames Path walking and cycling route is currently in place. This is due to essential works on the river wall on the west side of the peninsula.

The works are expected to take 18 months, so the diversion will be in place until February 2018.

Please follow the directions on the map, and diversion signs at street level.

We apologise for the inconvenience during this work. 

River crossings

Some bridges along the Thames Path may open for river vessels to pass through, for example, the Deptford Creek Swingbridge and Ha'Penny Hatch. Bridge openings stop pedestrian traffic for five to ten minutes.

There are also foot tunnels in Woolwich and Greenwich. These are usually open all day, but lifts or stairs may sometimes be closed for maintenance or cleaning.
