The Greenway, Newham (also known as Northern Outfall Sewer Embankment)

Introduction

Due to its proximity to the Olympic Park, improvement works to this route have taken place to improve the Greenway, but until late 2014 a section will be closed between Marshgate Lane and Stratford High Street due to Crossrail and 2012 Olympic building works. View Tube, a temporary observation, information, education, cycle hire and café, has been erected on the Greenway near Pudding Mill Lane DLR station. The Capital Ring Walk follows the Greenway for most of its distance.
