Latest update on Bexleyheath improvements

From tomorrow, 10 October, traffic towards Crayford will be reduced to a single lane between the Broadway in front of the new Lidl store and the junction of Gravel Hill and Watling Street. There will be no right turn onto Gravel Hill. The signed diversion route will be via Highland Road and Albion Road.

The diversion is needed to enable Southern Gas to carry out utility works and for work to replace the existing traffic light controlled junction at Gravel Hill/ Watling Street with a roundabout. The aim is to improve traffic flow and speed up journey times.

 

Thames Water currently have temporary traffic lights in place on Gravel Hill at Halcot Avenue while they deal with a water leak. For more information on this please contact Thames Water customer services on 0800 980 8800.

 

Improvement work on both of the roundabouts on Albion Road at Townley Road (by the library) and at Highland Road (by the Magistrates’ Court) continues to progress. Night resurfacing works will take place from 16 October. During this time Albion Road and the two roundabouts will be closed in stages, except for access, with signed diversions in place.

 

London Borough of Bexley apologises in advance for any inconvenience that may result during these improvements. We are working with local residents and businesses to minimise disruption. Drivers should take extra care while these temporary arrangements are in place.

 

The works are part of the final phase of the Bexleyheath Town Centre Revitalisation improvements, which started on Albion Road in January. They will help to ensure that Bexleyheath remains a vibrant town centre that continues to grow and are being managed by the Council and funded by Transport for London.
