Greenwich Park will reopen to cars next week when its parking spaces are reopened – but through traffic will still be banned. The park gates were closed to all vehicles at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis and have stayed closed as businesses begin to open up again. Royal Parks confirmed that parking will return on weekdays only from Tuesday 14 July, from 7am to 4pm. The only access will be via the Blackheath gates. However, Royal Parks has also announced today that the ban on through traffic will remain in place as part of a six-month trial across its London parks. Vehicles had been able to use the park as a cut-through during the evening rush hour, but Royal Parks signalled last year that it was considering ending this when it began consulting on a new “movement strategy”.
