The Greenway is a footpath and cycleway in east London constructed on the embankment containing the Northern Outfall Sewer. The path runs from Wick Lane in Bow through Stratford, Plaistow and Newham to Royal Docks Road in Beckton. It was known locally as sewerbank before a full renovation in the mid-nineties. Work has taken place to resurface and renovate the route - especially around the Olympic Park.
Until late 2014 a section of the Greenway is closed between Marshgate Lane and Stratford High Street due to Crossrail building work. The section of the Greenway between the Hackney Cut canal and the observation, information, education, cycle hire and cafe building (called View Tube) near Pudding Mill Lane DLR station is closed until December 2012 due to Olympic legacy building work.
The Capital Ring Walk (section 14) follows the Greenway for most of its distance. The point where the Greenway runs above the former Marshgate Lane in Hackney Wick is the closest the public can view the London Olympic Stadium.
