Consultation has begun on the next stage of the Bexleyheath Town Centre improvement scheme. The full designs will be on display at Central Library in Bexleyheath for one week from November 10.

Residents, businesses and town centre businesses are being urged to give their views on phase two stage one of the Transport for London funded scheme.

Cabinet member for environment and public realm, Don Massey, said; “The designs show our plans for more important improvement works to our town centre. They have been designed to make it far easier for traffic and pedestrians to move around and to make the west end of the Broadway an easier and more attractive place for shoppers to visit. Pop along to the library and take a look at the designs or view them online and have your say.”

It is proposed that the second phase will be carried out in two stages. The first of these will be the Broadway west of Church Road. This part of nthe development is expected to include better footways, improved lighting, road resurfacing and a re-design of the current Broadway/Lion Road/West Street staggered junction. The works are scheduled for completion in November 2015.

The second stage of the works will take place in Albion Road and Market Place. This will include improved access for pedestrians and cyclists on Albion Road, a re-design of the Gravel Hill/Albion Road junction and improvements to bus stop arrangements. The works are currently in the design stage and will be scheduled for completion by late 2016. The designs for this stage will be available next year.

After their time at Central Library the stage one design drawings will be available in the Broadway shopping mall from November 20 for one week and will also be available online next week at
