Section 1 - A206 Woolwich Road/Anchor and Hope Lane

Closed 16 Feb 2020

Opened 6 Jan 2020


Our proposals for this section are: 

  • A new two-way, segregated Cycleway running along the south-side of the A206 Woolwich Road (with the exception of a short section to the west of the junction with Anchor and Hope Lane)
  • New signals to help cyclists safely navigate the A206 Woolwich Road/Anchor and Hope Lane junction
  • A new pedestrian crossing close to the junction of the A206 Woolwich Road with Anchor and Hope Lane
  • The existing westbound A206 Woolwich Road bus lane would be extended by 80m, and it would operate from 07:00 - 19:00 Monday to Saturday
  • Bus stop F would be sited on a new ‘bus stop bypass’, to make it possible to introduce the new Cycleway
  • An eastbound traffic lane would be re-designated as a bus lane, which would operate from 07:00 - 19:00 Monday to Saturday  

These proposed changes are illustrated in the drawing below.
