Some 1,500 new flats are being built to transform three council estates in Woolwich.

The first 684 new homes at the renamed Trinity Walk (CGI below) are now under construction by the Lovell team.

Representatives from the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Asra Housing Group and the contractor gathered at the former Connaught estate to mark the beginning of building work. The ground-breaking event followed the completion of demolition work which began at the estate last October.

The first homes are due to be completed in late spring 2017.

Cllr Danny Thorpe, cabinet member for regeneration and transport, said: “The Connaught estate regeneration project is bringing state-of-the-art, energy efficient homes to the borough while also sparking job creation and economic growth. Through a dedicated programme of investment, partnership working and house-building, we are truly changing the face of this borough for our residents.”
