Works to widen the Harrow Manorway corridor and support other developments in south Thamesmead are progressing well.
Yesterday work began to remove the existing trees to enable better quality footpaths, segregated cycle ways, bus lanes, vehicle running lanes, and provide a central landscaped area. The 31 existing trees will be replaced with more extensive landscaping along the entire Harrow Manorway route. Over 100 new trees will be planted in total in the central median and alongside the new footpaths.
The work is the latest stage of a major highway and public realm improvements programme which London Borough of Bexley is delivering with partners, including Royal Borough of Greenwich and Peabody. It will support other developments planned for the area.
