Albion Road will be closed in stages

The next phase of work on the Bexleyheath Town Centre Revitalisation scheme (BTCR) starts on Monday (March 27), and involves road closures along Albion Road.

A section of the road will be closed for westbound traffic (travelling towards Welling) between Townley Road and Oaklands roundabout.

Traffic will be diverted into Highland Road, Arnsberg Way and Broadway.

Local traffic will still be able to use Albion Road from Highland Road to Townley Road and to access the Shopping Centre car park.

Eastbound traffic (travelling towards Crayford) will be unaffected. This phase of the works is planned to be completed by mid-May.

Once complete it will re-open to traffic and the section between Highland Road and Townley Road will be closed.

This will only affect westbound traffic (travelling towards Welling).

Similar traffic diversions will be in place and access will be maintained to the shopping centre car park and for residents along Albion Road and side roads.

The remainder of Albion Road will be affected in stages between Gravel Hill and Highland Road (westbound). Once work on the whole of the westbound carriageway along Albion Road is complete it will then begin in stages on the opposite side of the road (eastbound) with diversions in place.

There will be periods when the roundabouts at Townley Road and Highland Road will need to be temporarily closed and traffic diverted to enable reconstruction work to take place.
