River walkway reopens

Northfleet residents can now head directly to the Thames on foot or two wheels, following the completion of the first new and upgraded walking and cycling route, linking Ebbsfleet to the riverside.

The previous path at Granby road in Northfleet was completely overgrown before the upgrade, and now leads down to the areas of Northfleet West where new housing and businesses are planned.

This will then connect to Northfleet East where further homes and community facilities next to the Thames will be built.
