Bexleyheath roadworks due to be carried out this month

PUBLISHED: 12:00 04 August 2014

Repairs to areas of paved road surface on Arnsberg Way, Bexleyheath, will be taking place during the second week of August and are expected to last a week.

Temporary traffic lights will enable the work to be carried out without needing the road to be closed.

Arnsberg Way is part of the Bexleyheath Town Centre Revitalisation Scheme, which benefitted from new paving and road surfaces during 2013 and was declared the winner in the London Transport Awards 2014 in the category “Excellence in Walking and Public Realm”.

However, some isolated areas in Arnsberg Way have started to show surface defects which need repairing.

Cllr Don Massey, Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Realm said: “I am disappointed that these faults have materialised. We have called in an independent company to inspect the whole scheme and they have indicated that these faults are restricted to a particular paving material used only at some locations in parts of Arnsberg Way.

“We are working with the surface designers and contractor of the scheme to ensure this is rectified, including investigating other alternatives, to see if there could be a more robust long-term solution, such as changing the surfaces of these particular areas. I have made it clear that this is to be done at no cost to the public purse.”
