This evening Bexley Council
closed the Harrow Manorway/Yarnton Way roundabout for
resurfacing; why it will take three whole weeks is not yet clear, maybe the roundabout is to be remodelled.
Traffic at the roundabout at 9 p.m. was quite light although 90 minutes earlier I noted a queue of nine buses waiting for the single bus stop at the foot of Knee Hill, many of them diverted routes.
At various bus stops along Harrow Manorway people were waiting for buses that will not come until dawn, many people were walking towards Thamesmead.
At the roundabout itself it was far from clear what motorists should do. The car in the final picture had come from Yarnton Way without impediment and took the northern side of the roundabout towards Eynsham Drive where a head on collision was narrowly avoided because it had been made one way only without warning.
Harrow Manorway from the Station to Eastern Way was scheduled to be completed a year ago.
Well done Bexley Council, it’s what we have come to expect of you.
