Brockley Cross works to start in March

The improvement works planned for Brockley Cross are due to start in early March, the Council confirmed today. A spokesperson said:

"We had hoped improvement works at Brockley Cross would start at the beginning of February. Unfortunately, there has been a slight delay in lining up all the necessary elements in order that work can begin. We hope to be in a position to start work in early March."

This scheme should be a really positive step forward for this part of Brockley and in the grand scheme of things a couple of weeks here or there is no matter, the key issue will be whether the work is of high quality. We live in hope.

I wonder if they'll put a few more trees in to cover up the drug centre

"where is Brockley Cross please?"

God knows, I think it’s a roundabout with a Wetherspoons near it. Nothing exciting at all there, don't bother exploring unless you've missed your train.

Glad to hear that the works will start soon. Brockley Cross deserves a facelift and there are some nice shops (Mus's cafe, dress agency ...) there which will hopefully see an increase in trade as a result.

Only spotted the Dress Agency this morning after three years here!

I am looking forward to the new crossings and the trees, BX will be much safer and nicer to walk through soon.

Let me guess... Conway's right? Even as they left after the 6 month replacement of pavements west side, they reversed a truck into the wall of the raised beds on Mantle Rd demolishing half of it, they drove of laughing, not even joking.

Dress agency is brilliant (and I got some very nice dining chairs there once) but a bit strange in its opening hours.

As it's near to me on Malpas road, I'm very pleased to hear the news. The shops are useful and friendly. Always enjoy chatting with Paul. the worst part of the area is simply trying to cross the road!

Two recommendations for Paul's barbershop then, might give him try.

Tony the barber by Nunhead station is good but he's also the man who invented slow motion.

Duke's is a great little shop as is the juice bar. Though you'll rarely read that on here.

Maybe we should start a campaign to photograph Conway's shoddy works and send to the council.

I think the council are already aware of Brockley's busybody population and another reminder will not be necessary.

You obviously don't mind wading through the puddle by the station entrance each time it rains!

First world problems.

Pretty much anything other than dying of malaria or starvation is a first world problem. Curing cancer is a first world problem. We live in the first world. So enough of this pointless, depressing and dur brained line of argument.

We pay for their services. Their services have been sub-standard. That is something worthy of attention.
