Traffic eased in Bexleyheath town centre

PUBLISHED: 10:44 03 June 2013 | UPDATED: 10:44 03 June 2013

The temporary one-way system in Bexleyheath town centre has been removed having been in place since January.

Two-way traffic has now resumed on Broadway, Albion Road and Highland Road.

It is part of the Bexleyheath Revitalisation Scheme, which is aimed at improving transport and public space, to make the town centre more attractive for visitors and boost business.

Cllr Gareth Bacon, cabinet member for environment and public realm, said: “This is an ambitious project aimed at really addressing the needs of Bexleyheath.

“The areas outside Christ Church and at Trinity Place look magnificent. The 20mph zone, restricted parking zone and shared space concept will take a little getting used to, but I am confident it will result in a major improvement for all road users.

“A revitalised physical environment will encourage more people into the town and help boost business in Bexleyheath town centre.”
