Greenwich Waterfront Transit plans on show

Greenwich Council are giving residents the opportunity to visit a consultation exhibition and find out about plans on a major new transport scheme and how they will be linked into a range of local improvements to nearby roads and public spaces.

The Greenwich Waterfront Transit (GWT) will be a brand new fast, frequent and reliable service between Abbey Wood and North Greenwich Station, via Thamesmead and Woolwich and experts from Transport for London's GWT team will be on hand to update people on its progress.

The exhibition will be set up in Woolwich Town Centre on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 March, next to Natwest Bank in Powis Street, and there will also be an opportunity to speak with council staff about the range of regeneration schemes taking place in Woolwich and across the rest of the borough.

Deputy Leader of Greenwich Council and Cabinet member for Regeneration, Councillor Peter Brooks said, "A huge wave of change will sweep through Greenwich over the next decade and events like this give residents an opportunity to find out exactly what will be taking place. I would like to encourage residents to take the time to visit and give their views on the plans for their borough."
