The authority responsible for this area is the London Borough of Greenwich and as a result TfL cannot comment directly on the matter. Nevertheless, I have asked officers to raise the issue with Greenwich at the next borough liaison meeting. We will ask for your concerns to be investigated and a response made directly to you.

TfL understands that Greenwich currently enforces parking restrictions through the deployment of parking attendants, and as yet does not have the camera enforcement capability that is required for box junction enforcement.
