The essential refurbishment ensures that our customers have a safe and secure journey when travelling to and from Greenwich Pier.

What we've done

The pier's pontoons were taken away for routine maintenance and repairs. We've also replaced the anchor chains, refurbished the connection hinges between pontoons, repaired the main decks and painted all below-water areas.

The upriver half of the pier was removed, repaired and removed, followed by the downriver half. Gangways leading from the land onto the pier were closed to the public when they needed to be, with one set remaining open at all times.

The last time we carried out work on the pier was in 2003/4.
