In two weeks time
completion of the Gayton Road rebuild (alongside Abbey Wood station) will be a whole year late. Considering it isn’t
even 100 yards long that is quite an achievement.
However there are signs of the job coming to an end; the plastic barriers separating the road from the footpath largely disappeared just before Christmas and a week into the New Year a couple of nice wooden benches appeared.
This being Abbey Wood the drinking fraternity soon found them attracted by the bottle rack design.
On the other side of the railway an identical bench appeared with a new lamp post by its side. This being a Bexley Council project it was placed in the silliest position they could find.
Who in their right mind obscures one sign with another?
