Albion Road construction works nearing completion

PUBLISHED: 11:44 23 November 2017




Work will be finished by the spring

Major works on Albion Road in Bexleyheath town centre are almost complete with traffic restrictions lifted and most of the six new pedestrian crossings now up and running.

But work will continue on the construction of the roundabouts on Gravel Hill and the signal-controlled crossing at the junction of Albion Road until mid-December.

The work will pause for the run-up to Christmas, before resuming again in early January.

Work already completed has seen the removal of the central brick wall barrier which cut off the north and south side of Albion Road, to enable more direct access to the town centre. There are new footpaths with more space for pedestrians, along with six new direct zebra crossings, which the council hopes give the area a more modern and open appearance. Some of the footpaths are shared with cyclists and the zebra crossings have markings which allow cyclists to also cross at the side of them.

All the works, part of the Bexleyheath town centre revitalisation scheme, should be complete in spring next year.
