Works begin on Maiden Lane from the beginning of June

Carriageway resurfacing will take place in Maiden Lane, Crayford from the beginning of June, but Bexley council have warned residents may be approached by rogue traders.

A letter posted to residents in the area states that work will commence between the junction of Crayford Way and the railway bridge from June 5 and take “approximately five days to complete, subject to reasonable weather conditions.”

The information, provided by Bexley council, says: “Whilst the work is being undertaken, there will inevitably be some inconvenience caused, as it will be necessary to implement a road closure and restrict on street parking, to allow the scheme to progress quickly, safely and minimise disruption.

“Vehicle access will be given only where the works permit and any vehicles parked in the road during the closure will be professionally removed. Access will however, be available at the end of each working day.”

However, the council also warned people living in the area that they may be approached by individuals claiming to be from the work contractors - F.M Conway Ltd - offering improvement works to their residence.

They said: “We also need to advise you that during the course of the work individuals claiming to be from the council’s contractor, may approach you. These people are likely to be offering new driveways and the like. Persons giving false identity cannot be trusted and if given employment are usually untraceable after performing the work, which is invariably of an inferior standard.

“None of the council’s contractor’s employees are permitted to undertake private work.”
