The Royal Parks have revealed strategies for a number of parks across London which includes closing through-roads in Greenwich.
A report states that 80 per cent of respondents agreed with this: “Approximately 80% of our visitors get to the park by walking, cycling or public transport. We should further encourage and promote the use of these modes of transport
over other alternatives”.
82 per cent agreed that: “Park roads are primarily for people visiting our parks. We should seek to discourage the through-movement of commuting motor vehicles in our parks.”
This means The Avenue will close to through-traffic from King William Walk in the town centre up to Blackheath Avenue.
Their was concern that displaced traffic would head to residential streets to the west – though a scheme is designed to mitigate traffic in that area.
