At last, some welcome news on the Thames Path around the site of the old Tunnel Refineries plant (aka Amylum, Tate and Lyle, and Syral) – closed in March to enable the east Greenwich landmark to be demolished. The closure was due to last 12 weeks, but has so far lasted 34 weeks and was aggravated by the destruction of the old walkway at Lovell’s Wharf.
Well, this blog hears that weather permitting, the path through the old Tunnel Refineries plant will be ready for use by the end of November. Part of the river defence wall is being rebuilt, and two new lamp posts are also being installed.
That will just leave the Lovell’s Wharf section closed at Banning Street. With little sign of any fresh construction work there, it’s up to developer London and Regional Properties to pull its finger out and give us our path back.
