Greenwich Borough Liberal Democrats have voiced our concerns over the consultation process for the proposed East and West Greenwich Neighbourhood & Traffic Improvement Plan, arguing that the five proposed options fail to meet the needs of residents, local shops and businesses.
We have been actively involved in the consultation process, advocating for a holistic approach that doesn't merely shift traffic problems to adjacent areas. However, we believe the current proposals fall short of providing a comprehensive solution so we have proposed two alternative options:
Local Lib Dems are also concerned about the potential impact of the Silvertown Tunnel, set to open in 2025, and the poorly designed Trafalgar/Woolwich Road Cycleway. We fear these developments could increase traffic pressure on local roads and compromise user safety.
Therefore, we are calling for these proposed alternatives to be included in the ongoing council consultation and debate, as the current options could lead to increased pollution, extended journey times and longer travel distances for many residents.
