A new bus shelter, a wider cycle lane and additional ferry operator parking are among the proposals for North Woolwich that are being consulted on.

Transport for London intends to improve conditions for those using Pier Road and the Woolwich ferry, and reduce vehicle speeds.

Other suggestions include reconfiguring the bus turning area and widening the pavement at the ferry entrance and exit, providing a more convenient and spacious walking route to the bus stop.

TfL also plans to converte the junction at Fishguard Way to a roundabout with zebra crossings to reduce traffic speeds.

The scheme, should it go ahead, would also provide tactile paving for visually impared people.

The consultation runs until Monday, November 20. For more information and to have your say, visit consultations.tfl.gov.uk
