Motorists are advised to avoid the area

Crayford town centre is set to be running as normal later this week as Crayford Road reopens.

A burst water main closed the road three weeks ago, and works to repair the work went awry days later, flooding the town and leaving thousands of homes without water.

During the works, two roads heading into the town centre were closed, forcing motorists to take a different route.

Local businesses remained open during the disruption.

A Thames Water spokesperson said: “We’ve agreed with Bexley council that Crayford Road will open by Friday evening.”
