Cycleway Ends at Rochester Way and cyclists either have to share the narrow pavement with pedestrians or risk the road. There should be a cycle lane on Well Hall Road.

Cycleway:
Problem
135372

Close one or two of the four lanes of traffic. This will provide a wider pavement and two cycle lanes. It will also slow down the speeding traffic. Cycling along this road is deadly and the 1m wide pavements are too narrow to walk (coupled with the bus stop). Also no where to cross safely on this side of the massive (far too large, try cycling around it) roundabout.

Temporary closure:
Problem
135368

Villas Rd has huge potential to be an excellent part of cycling route from Plumstead Common to Woolwich, avoiding the dangers of Griffin Rd and Burrage Rd. It is already closed to through traffic, but historic design focussed on walking route and car parking. Minor changes such as dropped curbs and rearrangement or removal of some parking would have instant effect.

Cycleway:
Problem
135315

This is a school road. The road is used as a speedy cut through. The road and pavements are not wide enough, cars regularly drive on to pavements to overtake. The pavements are very narrow, 0.5 - 1m. The road should be closed at the Shooters Hill Road end, except for cyclists. This acute junction is very dangerous; there are regular crashes especially with motorbikes. Maybe put traffic lights for cyclists and combine pelican crossing on Shooters Hill Road.

Temporary closure:
Problem
134395

The cycle path at this point is dangerously in the door zone of parked cars. Any motorist who opens the door without care could knock over a cyclist into the path of a moving car. The cycle lane needs moving out beyond the reach of an open car door.

Cycle lane too narrow due to poorly positioned upright posts,Posts also make right turns from this road into side roads dangerous due to timing the maneuver with traffic approaching from behind.

Fast traffic. Some drivers do not give enough space to slow moving bikes. Major route for riders returning from jobs in Plumstead, Woolwich, Charlton and further west to homes in Bexley. Needs cycle lane uphill on, Wickham Lane, between Cemetery Rd and Lodge Hill. Fortunately, wide carriageway and no issues of parking.. Requires action by both RBGreenwich and LB Bexley.

Temporary closure:

Place modal filters here to stop traffic rat running along Sandy Hill Rd. At the moment, large traffic volumes use this as a short cut off the south circular along Sandy Hill and Crescent Rd then onto Burrage Rd. The traffic is way to heavy for these small residential roads.

Temporary closure:
Problem
127543

Remove parking bays and widen footpath. This has always been a pinch point for pedestrians.

Track:
Problem
127540

Sandy Hill Rd is a narrow residential street that suffers from rat running and excessive speeding. I believe modal filters at the corner of Burrage place and sandy hill rd would do a significant amount to reduce rat running. Sandy Hill Rd is used by they high volume bus routes - which for such a small residential street is very destructive to the nature of the street. These buses would be better served going down the much wider - Main Street - of Burrage Rd. This would result in a quicker and more direct bus route. If buses need to remain on their current route, the modal filter at the corner of Burrage Place and Sandy Hill Rd could restrict cars and motorbikes while allowing buses to pass.

Temporary closure:
Problem
127530

The west side of Sandy Hill Rd has an extremely narrow pavement that is often blocked by wheelie bins. This pavement is a high volume pedestrian street that needs to be widened.
