The Royal Borough of Greenwich is undergoing major change with substantial developments under way with a major home building programme and the arrival of the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail), with new stations at Woolwich and Abbey Wood.  These bring a range of longer-term challenges associated with the pace of new development, the continuing need to support local businesses and the predicted population and employment growth.

The Council’s Transport team plays a key role in supporting these changes by ensuring the most effective use of transport and parking resources and the successful movement of people and goods. This is critical to the vitality of the Royal Borough and the well-being of residents and visitors and existing and prospective businesses. The council has also got targets set from the Carbon Neutral Plan to achieve by 2030 and Transformation is key to ensuring we meet these.
