One of the areas of Thamesmead that was listed by many as a bad spot when I went to the first regeneration group, was the area known as the A Bridge. This is a footbridge that crosses the Eastern Way roundabout, letting pedestrians travel north or south. It is a bit run down and badly lit, but there are plans afoot to change that. Some designs were worked out by a group who met at The Link a little while back and there is now a shortlist that the community are being asked to vote upon.
Sadly, I’m not that keen on any of them, but never mind. I’m sure somebody must like each of them and I’ve voted for the towers option as it’s something iconic about the area.
You, too, can have your say via a Surveymonkey vote here:
Have a look at the options before voting blindly, though! They are all contained in the PDF here: http://www.bexley.gov.uk/CHttpHandler.ashx?id=13144&p=0
