1 March (Part 1) - There! At last

Not much more than 16 months after Abbey Wood’s Crossrail station opened, Bexley Council has pretty much finished the road that services it. Once again there is a bus stop and what passes for a shelter reasonably close to the station.

The complaint is that when the wind is blowing the rain about as it was yesterday evening the shelters are “woefully inadequate”. The old bus shelter is now a cycle rack and is no good as an overflow bus shelter.

It’s penny pinching and not what was promised at the outset two years ago.
