Bexley must be the undisputed road closure capital of South East London. While
Bexley Village is disrupted all week, a mile away more
traffic problems are being created in Gravel Hill. From tomorrow the Watling Street traffic
lights will be replaced by a temporary roundabout. With the usual disdain for
pedestrians anyone wishing to cross Gravel Hill on foot will be made to cross
Watling Street, Erith Road and Broadway instead.
Pedestrian safety is not a priority on Harrow Manorway either. Pedestrians using the crossing to access the railway station are denied a clear view of the road. They may be protected by the lights but anyone who steps out there without looking is a fool. Red lights and Abbey Wood drivers is not a safe combination.
