Yesterday’s Twitter announcement by Bexley council that
Lion Road will not reopen until
mid-October has me a little confused.
It’s said to be an Update, but is it supposed to represent a change?
The council originally said that work would start on 10th August, their website still says that, but it didn’t happen.
It actually started about two weeks later. The signs were photographed a few days beforehand and clearly show the revised start date; 24th August.
The signs also say that the work would last for seven weeks. Seven weeks, if you think in terms of five day weeks, ends on Friday 9th October, pretty close to both week commencing 12th and mid-October.
It looks like business as usual.
The reason for slow progress is not very hard to see. There is no one there, but by Bexley standards a week’s delay is nothing. Remember Sidcup?
