Albion Road faces disruption for the next five weeks as of Monday.


The closure started on Monday

Residents and motorists are set to face more than a month of disruption as improvement work began this week.

Plans to improve transport around Bexleyheath town centre started on Monday, with work getting underway to remove the central median on Albion Road, in front of the houses between Pincott Road and Victoria Road.

During the Transport for London funded works, which are expected to last up to five weeks, traffic will be restricted to a single lane.

The closure of the lane closest to the central median means parking will not be possible along Albion Road between numbers two to 40 and the doctor’s surgery.

Residents are being told to find alternative parking in side roads.

A Bexley council spokesperson added: “Alternative arrangements will be in place for refuse collections to avoid delays to traffic whilst collection is in progress.

“This may involve the contractor moving bins to a single collection point on the scheduled day.

“The bins will have a sticker attached identifying the appropriate house number and they will be returned after emptying. Residents should leave their bins out as normal on their collection day.

“London Borough of Bexley apologise in advance for any inconvenience that may result during the implementation of these improvements.”
