Motorists have faced weeks of roadworks in Bexleyheath and it is set to continue into the new year.

The works on Albion Road has had traffic restrictions lifted and will have most of the new crossings in use by Christmas, the council has confirmed.

Changes to Albion Road include the removal of the central brick wall barrier which cut off the north and south side of Albion Road and new footpaths with more space for pedestrians, along with six new direct zebra crossings.

Segregated cycle lanes have been installed along the majority of Albion Road, with the final stretch to be completed in the New Year.

The new carriageway along Albion Road is also complete with some sections converted to to a single lane.

Work will continue on the construction of the roundabouts on Gravel Hill and on the signal controlled crossing at the junction of Albion Road until mid-December using the current road layout.

Work will stop in the run-up to Christmas and will restart in early January.

There will be no road closures or diversions in place on Gravel Hill until early January.

All the work is expected to finally be finished by the spring.
