To minimise disruption, the work will be carried out in four stages, on week nights only between the hours of 7.00pm to 2.00am.

Each stage of the resurfacing work will last approximately four days, and signed diversions will be in place.

During the first stage of the resurfacing work, the northbound traffic lanes on Gravel Hill (Marriott Hotel side) will be closed just south of the Albion Road junction up to the junction with Broadway.

Traffic will be unable to travel up Gravel Hill towards Erith Road and will be diverted onto Latham Road and Townley Road, on to Albion Road, Highland Road and Broadway.

Albion Road will also be closed between the Highland Road roundabout and Gravel Hill on both sides except for access to the Albion Road car park and for local residents.

During the second stage of the resurfacing work, which will take place on the nights of February 2, 5, 6 and 7, the southbound traffic lanes on Gravel Hill will be closed just south of the Watling Street junction (near Gravel Hill Primary School) down to just south of the Albion Road junction.

There will be limited movements to and from Albion Road.

Traffic travelling from Erith or Crayford will not be able to travel southbound on Gravel Hill down towards the A2 and will instead be diverted onto Broadway and into Highland Road, along Albion Road towards Townley Road and Latham Road.

Stages three and four of the works are scheduled to take place from the night of 8 February onwards, with all of the resurfacing work expected to be complete by 20 February.

Full details of the traffic lane closures and the main signed diversion routes in place can be found at

Residents who have concerns about accessing their property during the works should contact the Conway Site Manager, Alan Perrin, on 01732 600700.

London Borough of Bexley apologises in advance for any inconvenience that may result during these improvements and will work with local residents and businesses to minimise any disruption to them.

The works are part of the final phase of the Bexleyheath Town Centre Revitalisation improvements.

They will help to ensure that Bexleyheath remains a vibrant town centre and achieves its full potential.

The borough secured funding for the works from Transport for London.
