Greenwich borough has been proactive in listening to the concerns of its residents by implementing various traffic reduction measures, including road closures, pedestrianisation, pavement narrowing, one ways and cycle only access on many of its residential streets.  These modifications were added street-by-street over the years.  The combined impact of these individual targeted measures have removed most of the rat runs and created safer, less polluted neighbourhoods.  These are LTNs in all but name and funding source.

West Greenwich was one of the last pockets of residential streets left open in the West Greenwich vicinity and therefore suffered from excessive and dangerous levels of traffic until the Council offered to implement a scheme using LTN funding.  Streets such as Vanbrugh Hill and Maze Hill which are also suffering from excessive traffic levels need the Council to take urgent action.

East Greenwich has been hugely successful in reducing residential traffic through piecemeal measures but given the addition of the new TfL cycleway and the increase in traffic congestion even before the pandemic, it may now need a holistic East Greenwich/Westcombe Park LTN as well:  the traffic is now all funnelled onto a few untreated principal roads namely, Maze Hill, Vanbrugh Hill, Westcombe Park Rd and Westcombe Hill. 

According to East Greenwich residents, Maze HIll changed overnight when Park Vista and Woodlands Crescent LTN closures were implemented, the former only in late 2019.

TfL Cycleway works started on 7th September 2020 coinciding with start of school.  Its impact including the closure of access onto A102 northbound at Angerstein Roundabout should not be underestimated.

We support RBG in its strategy to protect our Greenwich Neighbourhoods by taking a holistic approach towards the remaining vulnerable roads in East Greenwich and beyond.
