Improving the area for walking, cycling and public transport

We've been awarded funding from the Mayor of London's Liveable Neighbourhoods initiative to improve air quality and reduce congestion around Greenwich town centre.

The surrounding residential streets are also affected by rat-running traffic and we're working with residents and businesses to develop proposals to address this issue.

Reducing traffic in west Greenwich

As part of the Greenwich Liveable Neighbourhood we want to develop proposals to address safety and health concerns caused by traffic on residential streets in the area of west Greenwich referred to locally as the 'hills and vales' area. Previous attempts to solve the issue focussed on individual roads which had the unintended effect of pushing traffic onto neighbouring streets.

We're now looking for an area-wide approach across this area and we need the detailed knowledge of local residents and businesses to help shape our plans.

Have your say

It's important that all residents within the affected areas have an opportunity to give their views before we decide on a final plan.

We've developed initial ideas for this project and we need you to get involved and have your say, so we get as much information as possible to help guide us.

We aim to start this in January 2019 and we'll keep it running for a number of weeks.

Past events

We hosted an engagement event in the area on Friday 19 September and a focus group session with residents and businesses from streets across the area.

On Monday 19 November we hosted another event where the group discussed ways in which a combination of timed and fixed bollards could be used to address current traffic issues, prevent displacement to neighbouring streets but also maintain access at times when traffic does not create safety and health issues.

The ideas discussed need further work to refine the proposals, and we'll work with everyone to do this over the remainder of 2018.
