Thames Clippers Secure Future Of Greenland Pier
At the moment, we provide the only scheduled river service to Greenland Pier and will now run the pier under a three month licence while it carries out necessary structural and legal assessments, which will include a full underwater survey to evaluate its condition. Subject to the findings, we plan to take ownership and the daily running of the pier.
Our Managing Director, Sean Collins, said: “In order to safeguard the future of the pier and the daily journeys of hundreds of our customers we entered the tender process. We are very pleased Southwark Council has named us as preferred bidder and that we have secured the short term future of Greenland Pier. We hope to secure its long term future over the coming months.”
He added, “Our next steps will be to evaluate what immediate maintenance is needed for the pier and look to carry it out with as little disruption as possible. I would like to thank our passengers for their continued feedback and support.”
