The good news is that the riverside path isn’t yet closed where works are taking place on the cable car.
The bad news is that another section has closed, this time without warning – the section around Delta Wharf. This won’t come as a surprise to anyone that’s followed the numerous Thames Path closures on this blog, since it’s been mentioned before in passing in the comments that more work needs to be done to secure the river wall. It’s also the site of the proposed “beach” for the Peninsula Festival.
So with the exception of the small section through an aggregates yard by the Blackwall Tunnel, the path is once again closed between the Cutty Sark pub and the Dome. Happily for cyclists, Greenwich Council has at least resurfaced the treacherous diversion via the north end of Tunnel Avenue, so there’s no need to swerve into oncoming traffic to avoid deep potholes. Unhappily for walkers, Thames Water works have taken out most of the pavement on another part of the diversion. Hey-ho.
