A new covid testing centre will open at Abery Street car park in Plumstead.
The site will be a car park which housed a temporary library for some time. Raised planters for a Low Traffic Neighbourhood scheme were removed from the road this week, with people wondering why. This is likely the reason.
This new centre follows a test site opening at Avery Hill park in Eltham. Seven month after lockdown and accessible centres for people on foot are finally opening.
This contrasts to areas such as Germany, which have long had walk-in centres in areas of high footfall, such as outside rail stations.
For many months in London only car based centres were an option in places such as at one of north Greenwich’s sprawling car parks, despite London having the lowest percentage of households using a car in the country.
Tests must be booked in advance, and to do so visit gov.uk/coronavirus or call 119
