The other day, after I had discovered the Greenway - a cycle and pedestrian path on the top of the sewer running to Beckton, I was impressed.
I did, however wonder how on earth cyclists should cross the A11 which, at this point, is a confusion of 4 lanes of heavy traffic separated by railings. With no apparent way of crossing it to reach the other part of the Greenway.
I have just looked at google Streetview and realised the answer!

Of course! These two cyclists are showing us the crossing provision. Run across 4 lanes of traffic and heft your bicycle over the railings!
I can see families, the young and the old flocking to the Olympics on bicycle via Greenway if this is the expected crossing method.
