Someone in the know at Conways who do practically all the councils road works has
called to let me know why the roundabout construction at the junction of Wickham Lane and
Oakhampton Crescent has been on hold for the last month or so. Apparently it has
been so beautifully designed by the councils best brains that buses cant get
round it. Actually you can judge just by looking at this photo that a bus will
never be able to approach from the right and turn down the hill.
If you thought I was being a bit hard on Andrew Bashfords road planning
department and cretinous councillor Craske maybe you will think again. Ive been
told before by contractors working for Bexley council that they work entirely
off-plan and cannot be bothered to come out into the real
world to see for themselves. Too ashamed maybe?
The chaos caused by this ill-though out mess has been delaying
drivers for three months for no other reason than Bexley council is totally incompetent.
At dawn on a July Sunday. The road works cause horrendous
tail-backs at most other times of the day.
