135372Photo #135372Close 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:

135368Photo #135368Villas 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:

135315Photo #135315This 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:

134395Photo #134395The 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.Cycleway:

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.Cycleway:

127548Photo #127548Place modal filters here to stop traffic rat running along Sandy Hill Rd.

track
127540Photo #127540Sandy 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:
