25 July - Another Bexley council job creation scheme?

Corner made more difficult Island made wider Reports came in this week, liberally peppered with the word “idiots”, of massive traffic queues in North Cray Road so I nipped down there at 7 a.m. this morning to take a look. Sure enough, Bexley council has been up to its usual carriageway reduction tricks. I am not familiar with that junction and the last time I came down North Cray Road and turned left must be more than ten years ago. It looks as though it has been very easy to make that turn and clear the road quickly for following traffic and now it will inevitably be much more difficult and possibly result in queues. Bexley council loves queues. On the other hand the road must have been very wide for a pedestrian to cross. What is indisputable is that a lot of money is being spent at a time when everyone is supposed to be hard up. But when did Bexley council ever care about wasting your hard-earned?

My journey to Ruxley corner was circuitous because the whole of Bexley village had been cordoned off by the police so I returned via Sidcup and Welling. In Upper Wickham Lane I stumbled across yet more road disruptions and closures. A roundabout was being installed. To me it didn’t look as though it was placed where it was most needed.
