On the nights of February 9, and February 12 - 14, the northbound traffic lanes on Gravel Hill will be closed from the junction with Broadway (the Marriott Hotel side) to Erith Road, just north of the junction with Broadway (the Prince Albert pub side).

Traffic will be unable to travel up Gravel Hill northbound towards Erith Road, and will be diverted onto Albion Road towards the Highland Road roundabout, along Highland Road and Arnsberg Way to Mayplace Road West.

The final stage of the resurfacing works is planned to take place on February 15, 16, 19 and 20, with the southbound traffic lanes on Gravel Hill closed from Ertih Road just north on the Watling Street junction (the lanes along the side of the Civic Offices) to just south of the junction.

Watling Street will be closed close to the junction with Gravel Hill and there will be limited movements to and from Broadway.

Traffic travelling from Erith to Welling will be diverted into Mayplace Road West, on to Arnsberg Way and Highland Road.

Traffic to Crayford/Dartford will be diverted via Mayplace East and Perry Street.

Traffic travelling from Crayford/Dartford to A2 and Welling will be diverted via Bourne Road.
