Transport for London are conducting a major renovation of Greenwich Pier between November 2017 and March 2018. The renovation is expected to increase the pier’s lifespan by a decade and will involve the pontoons being removed in two phases. Some of the works which will be carried out include replacing the anchor chains, refurbishing the connection hinges between the pontoons, repairs to the main decks and a fresh coat of paint below the waterline.
Greenwich Pier will be closed for two days during March.

Greenwich Pier will be closed on Monday 26th & Tuesday 27th March 2018 while contractors reinstate the lower pontoons & gangways. As a result of this closure, no Thames River Services vessels will be operating sightseeing cruises to or from Greenwich Pier or the Thames Barrier on these days. Services are expected to resume on Wednesday 28th March 2018.
