19 March - Bexleyheath. Keep out

Bexleyheath Broadway Bexleyheath Broadway Bexleyheath BroadwayStill nothing of note to report. Meanwhile here are some pictures of how Bexleyheath is faring under the ill-conceived traffic diversions.

The first picture shows a bus in the far distance at the Watling Street/Gravel Hill junction - click image to enlarge. It took six minutes to get to where the photographer was standing.

The reason isn’t hard to see, traffic exiting Highland Road blocks the junction because of congestion in Arnsberg Way which queues all the way down to the Broadway junction with Albion Road which is traffic light controlled due to the decision to send diverted traffic around town in a counter-clockwise direction. It always seemed to be a mad idea but at least we have the pleasure of knowing that the man who sanctioned it was given a £9,469 bonus.
