Motorists travelling through Bexleyheath are set to face more disruption as maintenance work gets underway.

From tomorrow, traffic towards Crayford will be reduced to a single lane between the Broadway, in front of Lidl, and the junction of Gravel Hill and Watling Street, meaning there will be no right turn to Gravel Hill.

The closure is due to SGN utility works and for the existing traffic light junction to be placed with a roundabout, in a bid to “improve traffic flow and speed up journey times”, according to Bexley council.

A signed diversion will be via Highland Road and Albion Road.

A spokesperson from the council added: “Improvement work on both of the roundabouts on Albion Road at Townley Road (by the library) and at Highland Road (by the Magistrates’ Court) continues to progress. Night resurfacing works will take place from 16 October. During this time Albion Road and the two roundabouts will be closed in stages, except for access, with signed diversions in place.

“London Borough of Bexley apologises in advance for any inconvenience that may result during these improvements. We are working with local residents and businesses to minimise disruption. Drivers should take extra care while these temporary arrangements are in place.”

Thames Water has also set up temporary traffic lights on Gravel Hill at Halcot Avenue whilst they deal with a water leak.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
