The end is near for motorists and pedestrians who have been affected by a major roadwork project in Bexleyheath. 

The resurfacing works on Gravel Hill has finished and the council said the main roadworks are complete.

Final touches still need to be made but it is not expected to impact on daytime traffic. 

New pedestrian crossings are being installed at the new roundabouts by the Civic Offices and at the Albion Road junction, expected to be finished by March. 

A council spokesman said: " The new layout has been introduced to help traffic in the area flow more easily, particularly as volumes increase in the coming years.

"Traffic modelling and analysis of the balance of traffic flows in the area were used to optimise the effectiveness of the whole layout and allowed for growth up to the year 2026, whilst also improving facilities for pedestrians, road safety and the general street environment.

"This modelling showed that had the original layout been retained the road network was likely to be subject to long delays in the future and that something needed to be done."

As well as the crossings, cycle lanes have been installed along Albion Road and Gravel Hill. 

The last of the roadworks should not impact drivers during the day, but work around Albion Road and the Townley Road roundabout could bring problems for motorists at night due to closures. 

Resurfacing the areas near Townley Road and Highland Road roundabouts mean that the council will be closing roads during the night.
