Allow me a moment to run something past you. Above is the Woolwich Road/ Bugsby’s Way/ Charlton Church Lane interchange, I’m sure you’re familiar with it. If you were TfL and you had an opportunity to redevelop these crossroads, what would you do?
Would you try to funnel more traffic into Bugsby’s Way? Would you restrict more traffic from entering the narrow Charlton Church Lane? Would you make it more pedestrian friendly? Would you give more access for bicycles? Would a new set of traffic lights in Woolwich Road demand a rethink of this junction? Would you keep it like it is?
