Ring the bells, hang out the bunting, Bexley has acquired
another dangerous roundabout
which nothing much bigger than a Smart car can get around in a totally safe manner.
Last night, with nobody around after 11 p.m. and travelling from North to South, I decided I would stay completely in lane, the outer lane, and very nearly ran out of road at under 20 m.p.h. Apart from the aforesaid Smart, few cars are smaller than mine.
With a newly marked bus stop immediately following the roundabout and a pedestrian crossing due soon, pulling out from Lensbury Way (to left of Photos 1 to 3 ) is not going to be a lot of fun at busy times.
Four years ago Bexley council, advised by cabinet member Peter Craske, handed over £4 million to the transport consultants Parsons Brinckerhoff. Did anyone notice any improvements?
