Road network

The A206 road links Greenwich with Greenhithe following the line of the River Thames. Today it is approximately 15 miles (24 km) in length, although the final section is a relatively new road. Its primary purpose is to link into the London Orbital motorway at the Dartford Crossing and is heavily used by lorries.

The main settlements along the route are Greenwich, Charlton, Woolwich (with the Woolwich Free Ferry), Plumstead, West Heath, Belvedere, Erith, Dartford and Greenhithe.
