Section 3 - A206 Woolwich Road/Charlton 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. We would need to reduce the size of the roundabout at Westmoor Street to provide the extra space needed
  • An eastbound and westbound traffic lane would be re-designated as bus lanes, which would operate from 07:00 - 19:00 Monday to Saturday
  • Bus stop B on the A206 Woolwich Road would be sited on a new ‘bus stop bypass
  • A new raised table at the junction with Charlton Lane to slow traffic and make it easier for people to cross
  • A section of Charlton Lane would be made no entry to all vehicles except the Emergency Services and cyclists in order to reduce rat running and the dominance of traffic on Charlton Lane
  • We would plant new trees and provide additional landscaping to improve the look and feel of the area   

These proposed changes are illustrated in the drawing below.
In order to make it possible to introduce these improvements it may be necessary to remove several trees on the central reservation of the A206 Woolwich Road.  We believe however that it would be possible to plant a greater number of replacement trees. We have indicated in the plan below the location of those trees we believe would need to be removed and where new trees might be planted. Exact locations would be selected following more detailed surveys.
