I had heard that serious progress was being made on Sidcup High Street but the
events of the past week have prevented a visit. This afternoon I exited the M25
early and headed into Sidcup from the A2. That perhaps implies that I made a
speedy entrance but the traffic queue extended back to Sidcup Place and the
junction with The Green was jammed. Maybe because I have never attempted to park
in Sidcup before I found it difficult to find a space even on a Sunday.
In the nine days since my last visit the area outside Bexley council’s own shop, Sidcup & Co., had made a little progress but was far from finished and it was not possible for pedestrians to pass by on that side of the road.
Hadlow Road is not yet half done but close. Bearing in mind that works started on 20th January and are scheduled to finish at the end of the coming week, prospects are not good. The rest of the High Street was unchanged. As you can see, it all looks a bit of a mess and will be doing nothing to attract shoppers.
