Unsafe tree diverting buses in Greenwich

Numerous bus routes are on diversion in Greenwich Peninsula as an unsafe tree has resulted in an inability to travel along parts of West Parkside.

High winds are also causing issues on other forms of transport with Southeastern having a 50 mph speed limit across the network.

Dartford crossing bridge also has a speed restriction.

This website is a labour of love and almost entirely the work of one person (me!). It takes a lot of time to research and write new posts and as a private renter, I'm not flush with money.

    It is better to be safe than sorry. I hope the tree will see work carried out to make it safe as soon as possible. So buses and other vehicles can travel along West Parkside.

    Some trees around Greenwich Borough are being allowed to grow very high with a wide spread of branches. Although it is nice to see the trees and have greenery on streets. If they got damaged in high winds and came down they would cause a lot of damage to neighbouring homes and vehicles.
