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 was closed until December 2012 due to Olympic legacy building work. The section between West Ham station and Stratford High Street is closed (2015). A diversion is sign posted via local streets.
The Capital Ring Walk (section 14) follows the Greenway for most of its distance.
