12 December (Part 1) - Bexley this week

CrayfordA mere ten weeks after the new London Road/Bourne Road roundabout in Crayford was brought into use the T junction sign has been taken away.

Bexley BexleyIn Bexley village work continues on the bridge replacement. The real fun starts on January 7th and will reach its peak on 22nd February when the bridge will close for five weeks.

Far away in Belvedere the fence around Lesnes Abbey is being ripped out. It was installed five years ago at a cost of £74,995. The figure provided when I posed my first and last question at a council meeting.

The old fence was low (Photo 1 below) which allowed dog walkers who park in the adjacent parking bays to step over it or crack their shins depending on their degree of wakefulness and motorcyclists to easily lift their steeds. The new one appears to be of the same ugly scaffold pole design.

The one thing that all three sets of pictures have in common is that none of the work is directly funded by Bexley council. TfL in Crayford and Bexley. The Heritage Lottery Fund in Belvedere.
