3 August (Part 2) - Cock-eyed optimists

Felixstowe Road Felixstowe Road Eynsham DriveNext Tuesday Felixstowe Road which runs alongside Abbey Wood station is to close for an estimated nine weeks. The work has to be done, at the moment the road is several feet lower than the footpath making crossing the road into the station an impossibility.

Bexley Council’s official notice about the closure may be read here.

The diversionary route is along Eynsham Drive but Photo 2 taken earlier today shows that it too is blocked and has been for about three months. I would guess that it could be fixed on Monday but it will be a close run thing.

Similar optimistic dates were given for Gayton Road on the other side of the railway line. That was supposed to be completed more than a year ago too but a look at these photos will show you that there is still a way to go.

The staircase to the flyover has had no work done on it for many months and the road is still decorated with many plastic barriers and several holes in the ground.

Bexley Council at its best.
