Work kicks off on 13th August to construct a new “super crossing” in Woolwich linking the Royal Arsenal and forthcoming Elizabeth Line station to the town centre.
Plans show an extremely wide crossing leading from the new station to the Gate House by Beresford Square.

Yet similar will shortly be installed at £10 million road work at Abbey Wood by the Crossrail station there.

Work is due to last three months.
The site survives thanks to the kind support of readers.
