Work has begun on the Deptford Creek pedestrian swing bridge.
The new crossing is at the entrance of Deptford Creek.
Most of the work is on Granophast Wharf where Galliard Homes has built flats incorporating a Waitrose.
The bridge should be available to walkers and cyclists at the end of the year. The Thames Path will, when the development is completed, be rerouted to stay by the river between Wood Wharf and the Peter the Great statue just upstream of Deptford Creek.
At present the Thames Path runs inland via Norway Street, by the closed Rose & Crown pub, to cross Creek Road’s swing bridge.
