7 September (Part 2) - Bourne Road in trouble again

Bourne RoadI can’t remember a time when Bexley and Bexleyheath have not been subject to constant traffic disruption, it must be around three years since it was relatively clear. Before the so called Broadway regeneration started, the western end of it was disrupted by gas main replacement that went on, because of various unexpected problems, for more than a year, and there have been water main problems too, and Bellegrove Road was in a big mess for ages. It’s never ending.

Perhaps that is why several readers have been complaining about the Bourne Road bridge over the A2. There have been massive jams for about three weeks and there are no advance warning signs to encourage alternative routes. However it’s not something that should be blamed on Bexley council, this time it is Transport for London.

This is what it looked like in the heavy rain (below) at 1:30 today. Delays are far worse during the evening rush, but even so the queue on the A2 slip road extended back out of sight.
