Routes towards both Welling and Crayford will be diverted

Bexley council have announced that during the school summer holidays several additional sections of Albion Road will be closed.

The works, as part of the Bexleyheath Town Centre Revitalisation (BTCR), started in January, and funding was secured from Transport for London (TfL). This is expected to be the final phase in the plans.

The improvment works between Gravel Hill and Highland Road - travelling towards Welling - will also remain closed throughout August.

From July 31, Albion Road will be closed from Oaklands car park/bowling alley to Townley Road, for traffic travelling towards Crayford. Traffic will be diverted along Broadway and Arnsberg Way.

Traffic needing to access the Clock Tower Court area will use the bus lane from Townley Roundabout, which will be suspended.

From August 7, Albion Road will also be closed between Highland Road and Gravel Hill towards Crayford.

Construction will also begin on the two new roundabouts planned on Gravel Hill at the junctions with Albion Road and Broadway/Watling Street. Construction will begin on the Marriott Hotel side with traffic on Gravel Hill diverted across to the east.

After the school holidays, construction will continue on the two new roundabouts on Gravel Hill, and traffic will be moved to the Marriott side of Gravel Hill, with a temporary roundabout in operation at the Albion Road/Gravel Hill junction allowing all turning movements. Work will also continue on Albion Road between Townley Road and Highland Road, with traffic travelling towards Crayford diverted.

A council spokesperson, said: “Most of these Albion Road works are expected to be completed during the school holidays.

“Throughout the works access to all car parks will be maintained and businesses will be open as usual. Bus services will be maintained, although there will be some local diversion of routes, organised by TfL.

“We apologise for any inconvenience and will be working with local residnets and businesses to minimise disruption. Drivers should take extra care during these arrangements.”
