19 December (Part 2) - Chaos looms

Broadway Albion RoadThere is a comment on the Sidcup Community Group website headed ‘Consultation Fatigue’. The author has noticed that we are suffering from a surfeit of consultations. The hospital, the police, Bexley’s ‘core strategy’, the river crossing, Sidcup High Street. Will they make a scrap of difference? Probably not, but at least there is a consultation on Sidcup High Street. In Bexleyheath Broadway you are getting a mixed use area, a massive parking trap and chaos while the work is done. Like it or lump it.

Broadway is to be west bound only and Albion Road the reverse. That should be great fun. For those who don’t know the area it makes a sort of reverse roundabout, albeit a large one, and by reverse I mean traffic will have to go around it in an anti-clockwise direction so that both traffic streams will have to cross each other at the Bowling Centre roundabout.

While trying to cope with that drivers will be expected to read the signs warning that there are no yellow lines on Broadway but parking is forbidden or face a fine.

Road chaos
You want more? Highland Road is being made one way with a bus lanes. It might have been better to have just closed the town until June 2013.
