Demolition work to begin for future Greenwich Travelodge hotel

Buildings on the site of an approved Travelodge hotel in Greenwich peninsula will be demolished according to a newly submitted plan.

The site was used by O’Keefe Construction with two different hotel plans unveiled over the past decade before a 300-room block was given the green light.

The latest application documents demolition of existing buildings and details of hotel construction.

A modest sum (£50,000) will be allocated from Section 106 income towards improving local streets with £70,000 for transport.

And they really do need it.

The street network hasn’t changed much during years of new housing, hotels and commercial space built in the area.

Hotel guests hoping to visit Greenwich will encounter a pretty abysmal environment en route.

Some roads in the area are rarely if ever maintained

The site will also see 60 parking spaces.

It sits beside the A102 which is set to see an increase in traffic when Silvertown tunnel opens and sees two tunnel’s worth of traffic feed into the same width road at this point.

In recent months plans have also emerged for new housing on the opposite side of Boord Street.

Fairview Homes are looking to build 361 homes and 350 student rooms.

There’s also plans for Morden Wharf the other side of the new footbridge as well as plans for new housing at Enderby Wharf, which will be revealed this coming Monday.
