Lewisham Council are making improvements to the walkways and open spaces around the Pepys Estate. Work will begin on 23 November 2015 and will be completed by August 2016.
The improvements will provide residents with a new green space and play facilities for children and young people. They will make it easier and more pleasant to walk or cycle to facilities near to the Pepys Estate.
The improvements will create a park along the route of the former Surrey Canal, so it will be called the Surrey Canal Linear Park.
These improvements have been planned after talking to local residents in February 2015. They are being paid for with money raised through the new developments at Cannon and Marine Wharf and Deptford Wharves.
It will be completed in two phases and the first phase is currently under construction as part of the Cannon Wharf and Marine Wharf Development. This second phase will deliver the section between Cannon & Marine Wharf and Oxestalls Road. Following this, the intention is to re-open the former canal bridge and create a connection to the forthcoming Deptford Wharves development by continuing the route beyond Oxestalls Road.
