one wants to see huge lorries going through Bexley Village and not unreasonably
they are banned from doing so.
Soon after the new bridge over the Cray was opened two years ago CCTV monitoring was installed. Bexley Council, never one to tell the absolute truth, imply the bridge cannot take vehicles over 7·5 tonnes which is nonsense, the real reason is that the village centre is far too small and the regular flow of double deck buses is quite bad enough.
The signs are not as helpful as they might be. If you get as far as the notice in Photo 2 and have the time to read down to the second warning it is too late to turn back.
As a result 1,184 drivers fell foul of the restriction last year.
