New cruise terminal planned at Greenwich for 2012

Transport planner JMP has provided transport advice in support of an application for a new cruise ship terminal on the Thames at Greenwich. 

It is hoped that the scheme, recently given planning approval by the London Borough of Greenwich and London mayor Boris Johnson, will be ready in time for the London 2012 Olympic Games. 

The plans also incorporate a Thames Clipper Station for water buses, a hotel providing 251 bedrooms, 770 new homes, a public square linked to the Thames Path, 1.2km² of training and employment floorspace, a 250m²GFA Crèche, and a 304m² Gymnasium.

The site, known as Enderby Wharf, is located to the south of the O2 Arena, in an area encompassed by the A2203 Blackwall Lane to the east and the River Thames to the west. It is currently a redundant wharf with approximately 180m fronting onto the River Thames

The cruise terminal will provide docking for ships up to 240m in length, serving a range of ship sizes with a typical capacity of up to 1,000 passengers.

Lack of a purpose-built terminal is a recognised weakness in London’s tourist offer which is even more acute with the impending Olympic Games. The new passenger cruise ship terminal will attract significantly more international cruise ships to visit London.
