29 March (Part 1) - Andrew Bashford is Head of Highway Services

Albion Road Albion RoadBexley Council claims to have finished disrupting traffic outside the Civic Offices but the bad news is that chaos will continue in perpetuity. Yesterday the crazy pedestrian controlled lights placed on the exit of all four roads on the new roundabout were brought into service.

I needed to drive to Bexley Village yesterday afternoon, a journey that can take as few as eleven minutes given a clear run and no red lights although 20 minutes is more typical. Yesterday it took longer than that to get past the two new roundabouts. A year ago I forecast they would improve traffic flow. Clearly I failed to take full account of the idiocy that pervades Bexley Council’s road planning department.

The photos below were taken over a period of five minutes when I broke the return journey from Bexley Village. Every time a pedestrian used the lights the whole roundabout snarled up. As if the situation is not bad enough already, after Easter Bexley Council plans to install similar lights at the Albion Road roundabout.

Perhaps while there they will paint the yellow lines properly.
