Major roadworks sees road closure over holiday period at Plumstead gyratory

Major roadworks are set to be undertaken over the holidays on an elevated junction in Plumstead.

The project will run between 27th December and 5th January when the A206 southbound along Pettman Crescent closed to all traffic between Nathan Way and Plumstead High Street.

Temporary traffic lights will be in operation. The one-way system will become two-way traffic on the stretch seen below with traffic from Thamesmead diverted.

This stretch will become two-way during works with traffic turning at junction ahead

The road surface on the raised section near Plumstead station has been breaking up for years. Intermittent works are undertaken but usually to little avail with holes appearing days after.

This project is of larger scope and seeks to achieve a long-term solution.

In recent weeks Greenwich Council have also embarked upon changes to this area though those are unrelated to these works set for later this month.

Changes are proposed beneath the bridge

I covered that recently which can be seen here.

As for upcoming work, expect bus delays as the site is directly beside Plumstead bus garage and extra queues are inevitable hampering bus services and reliability.

Further information can be found on a Greenwich Council webpage here.


Running a site takes much time and cost a lot of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my rent.
