Ongoing roadworks are set to cause fresh disruption for motorists in Bexleyheath from tonight.

Albion Road will be closed from 7pm each evening for the next five nights, with the road not reopening until around 3am each morning.

The closure is in place for a new roundabout at Highland Road to be surfaced, along with the section of Highland Road by Broadway Square car park.

It means Albion Road will be closed between Townley Road and Gravel Hill, except for access to the shopping centre and the residential area between Victoria Road and Pincott Road.

Signed diversions will be in place taking traffic away from Albion Road and along Broadway and Arnsberg Way, while traffic on Highland Road will also be diverted around the closures.

A spokesperson from the council explained: “Access to the residential areas of Pincott Road, Warren Close and Victoria Road will be from Townley Road roundabout and using the opening in the central median at Pincott Road, near the magistrates’ court, as has previously been the case.

“Exit from the area will be via Victoria Road onto Townley Road roundabout as usual but it will not be possible to make a u-turn at the roundabout and return along Albion Road to reach Gravel Hill.

“So far as is practical, noisy operations such as removing the existing carriageway surface, sawing and hydraulic breaking out, will be ended by 11pm and other works no later than 2am. The timings of these night works may change depending on weather conditions.

“London Borough of Bexley apologise in advance for any inconvenience that may result during these improvements.”
