In order for the cable car across the Thames to be installed before the Olympics there is going to be another Thames Path closure on the Greenwich peninsula.
Phoenix Wharf, the stretch between the football ground and the Dome pier, will close from Monday 1 August until the end of the year.
The planned alternative route is at present unclear but it will be roughly mean that a diversion will start just beyond the Millennium Village. Walkers will have to turn inland along the cycleway and then turn north-west up East Parkside. At Edmund Halley Way there will be asigned route back to the river just north of the pier.
It should still be possible to enjoy the path round Blackwall Reach on the north side of the 02 Dome.
