Gareth Bacon has today announced that the traffic chaos surrounding
Bexleyheath should come to an end about five weeks from now. From the end of May
traffic will revert to the old routes and circulate in the old direction with
only minor exceptions. Work will continue for another five months but the town
should offer a more attractive destination than it has recently.
As stated last June, on the day councillor Peter Craske was due to make the announcement but was instead occupying a police interview room, the Broadway regeneration looks to be a very attractive scheme and it is to be hoped proves to be safe as well. Councillor Bacon says the work will be to a “standard we can be proud of”.
As the photo shows, it shouldn’t fail for the lack of concrete and steel reinforcement.
Note: Two of the photographs in yesterday’s feature were of shops which were not closed down but which are closed every Monday morning. They have been replaced with alternative pictures. The blog did not actually say that the shops were all business failures but it was a conclusion too easily reached and as such was not acceptable.
