Fresh safety concerns were revealed
Emergency repairs on two privately-owned buildings in the centre of Bexley Village will continue to cause problems for motorists for the rest of this week.
Temporary traffic lights have caused chaos for any motorists using the Bexley High Street and Bourne Road roundabout for weeks.
It had been hoped the unplanned works to deal with roof slates falling from the building would be complete by the start of the week, but inspectors discovered more work was needed to keep the site safe.
The discovery is a setback for motorists, with scaffolding and traffic lights expected to stay on site until Monday, May 15, at the earliest.
Parliamentary candidate for Old Bexley and Sidcup James Brokenshire said: “I share the huge frustrations that the temporary traffic restrictions are causing and will continue to press for the works to be completed as rapidly as possible. This simply can’t come too soon.”
