PUBLISHED: 12:39 07 January 2013
Major disruptions are due to start in Bexleyheath town centre on Monday (14) as roadworks start on a scheme which Bexley Council claims will revitalise the area.
A range of traffic diversions are expected to be in place for five months as part of the Bexleyheath Town Centre Revitalisation Scheme, which aims to improve traffic flow and is linked to the development of new council offices in Watling Street.
Albion Road will be one way from Broadway near Trinity Place to Townley Road, Broadway will be one way from Graham Road near Asda to Albion Road near Trinity Place as will Highland Road from Albion Road to Broadway.
The council has distributed more than 2,500 leaflets to make the public aware of road closures.
Arrangements will be to provide a replacement bus stop for westbound buses on Albion Road near Royal Oak Road to maintain access to the Broadway shops.
This stage of the scheme will also see traffic signals removed, an upgraded pedestrian crossing near Asda, a new roundabout near the Bowling Centre in Albion Road and a new mini roundabout by the entrance to Asda’s car park in Arnsberg Way.
