A motorbike and car have collided this lunchtime at a junction in east Greenwich.
It appears the rider was not injured. Traffic is very slow in the area.
This crossing has been an eyesore and dangerous for many, many years. It’s a Greenwich Council managed junction though they’ve long hoped TfL would fund improvements.
It was due to be included in Cycle Superhighway 4 work from Tower Bridge to Woolwich which has been in planning for the past decade. That scheme was then curtailed by TfL to Greenwich with work now underway. A post showing progress at Deptford is coming later today.
Plans for an extension from Greenwich to Woolwich were revived and due to be consulted in November this year until the General Election meant it was placed on hold.
East Greenwich Residents Association tweeted “We also had to contend with multiple drivers refusing to stop for the adjacent pedestrian light.”.
@Royal_Greenwich @TfL between you it's time to sort this junction out. Blackwall Lane and Trafalgar Road a few minutes ago. Thankfully the motorcyclist seems OK. We also had to contend with multiple drivers refusing to stop for the adjacent pedestrian light. pic.twitter.com/BfXNVAHtZX
