Roadworks are about to hit Lewisham's busiest roundabout as part of a £230m regeneration project.

Lewisham Gateway Developments Ltd (LGDL) will start work on reconfiguring Loampit Vale roundabout on Monday (July 14) - part of the mammoth Lewisham Gateway project creating new homes, retail and business space.

The work - being carried out over 20 months - involves removing the roundabout where the A20 and A21 meet and re-configuring Loampit Vale, Station Road, Lewisham Road, Lewisham High Street and Molesworth Street.

A consultation is also being launched on detailed designs for the project's second phase, promising 169 homes, cafes and restaurants overlooking a new park, Confluence Place, and new pedestrian walkways.

The team will be at the Leemore Centre in Clarendon Rise from 2.30pm to 7pm on July 18 and Lewisham Shopping Centre the following day from 10.30am to 3pm.

Director of LGDL Michael Auger said: "The start of works on the road reconfiguration is an important milestone in the delivery of Lewisham Gateway and will greatly improve access to the town centre from Lewisham’s stations.

"These vital road works will enable the delivery of a new heart for the town centre comprising homes, shops, restaurants and green space. We are very grateful for people’s patience during the works and will seek to ensure disruption is kept to an absolute minimum."
