Improvements to made to Broadway area in Bexleyheath
PUBLISHED: 07:00 04 September 2018
Shoppers and visitors are set to benefit from improvements to the Broadway pedestrianised area in Bexleyheath.
Access to the town’s shops and bus stops will not be affected.
Work started last week and will continue until mid-November, when it will be stopped for events and the Christmas period.
It will re-start in the New Year and, weather permitting, should be completed by the end of March.
Cllr Louie French, deputy leader and cabinet member for growth, said: “It is now 25 years since the road was closed and the town centre pedestrianised.
“It has helped attract people in the town over the years, but we talked to the Bexleyheath BID and the Broadway Shopping Centre and decided it was time to freshen things up.”
The improvements will involve new surfacing; decluttering by removing street furniture that is no longer needed; refurbishing tree pits and fitting frames to support further growth of the established trees and modifying the screens around the flower bed.
All the street furniture will be repainted when the major works have been completed.
