Construction of two roundabouts to replace traffic lights begin next week

Improvement works around Bexleyheath high street are continuing, with the next phase of construction beginning next Monday on the creation of two roundabouts on A220 Gravel Hill.

The construction of the new roundabouts, which are part of the Bexleyheath Town Centre Revitalisation improvements, at the junctions with Albion Road and Watling Street/Broadway, from May 15, is likely to have significant impact on traffic and journey times from June.

The roundabouts will replace the exisiting traffic lights and should be completed by November.

Work will also take place to re-pave footpaths, add cycle lanes, improve road crossing facilities, and improve drainage and street lighting.

The first few weeks of the works will involve the removal of the existing traffic islands and should have minimal impact on traffic.

In mid June, construction will begin on the footpaths and cycle lanes on the west side of Gravel Hill - Mariott Hotel side - between Watling Street/Broadway and the Albion Road junction.

Temporary traffic lights will be in place at various points to facilitate works and access to and from Broadway and Albion Road will vary.

At times, come turning movements will not be permitted and signed diversions will be in place. There may also be times when pedestrian and vehicle access to roads is restricted.

Bus services will be maintained but some routes may be altered temporarily but access for emergency services will be possible at all times.

People who have concerns about access to their home or business should contact the site construction manager, Paul Williams on 01732 600700.
