The London Borough of Greenwich has responsibility as highway authority for road safety at this junction. Following a request for funding by the borough, TfL has provided £90,000 this year through the Local Implementation Plan (LIP) process. These funds will enable the borough to carry out an in-depth study of the collisions at this location and implement any cost-effective recommendations. TfL officers will be happy to work with their colleagues in the borough to improve safety for cyclists.
