Here’s a welcome improvement I’ve been meaning to cover for some time.
Trees have been planted along a section of Blackwall Lane in Greenwich on a site beside Christ Church Primary School. Greenery is now seen at the base. Certainly beats stained, grotty wooden bollards at dodgy angles or guardrail.
A number of nearby street changes have also lifted the area. I wrote a post last year looking at Trafalgar Road. It’s now a place I don’t mind walking along as street clutter is reduced allowing more pedestrian space. Couple that to welcome new public spaces and it’s better all round.
Clearly it’s still traffic chocked and pedestrian paths are still narrow but fixing that requires bold, bigger moves.
Well done to Greenwich Council and all involved. I know a few people did excellent work so do leave a comment highlighting those who should be celebrated.
