Calls to open Greenwich University’s Old Naval College to ease Thames Walk crowds
There have been calls to open locked gates at the old Royal Naval College site in Greenwich in order for people to avoid the narrow Thames path.
There’s barely room for two people to pass in places making social distancing of two metres impossible. Far more space is available at the Naval College site running parallel linking the Cutty Sark to the Trafalgar Tavern pub.
With the Greenwich foot tunnel being closed today, opening this stretch seems an obvious way to help alleviate another pinch point in the area.
