Loampit Vale road closure programme: Feb 1 - Mar 12

Here's a traffic update courtesy of our eye in the sky, Cllr Walton.

Reconstruction of the A20 Loampit Vale between Thurston Road and Molesworth Street is scheduled to commence on the 1st February and to be completed by the 12th March.

The reconstruction works will include improvements to the drainage in the area as well as the resurfacing of the carriageway. Transport for London expects these improvement works will reduce the need for future long term maintenance of the carriageway and reduce the risk of water pooling on the road surface.

During certain phases of the works there will be diversions to both vehicles and buses. These diversion routes will be clearly signposted and have been routed along main roads to reduce the risk of potential ‘rat running’ through residential areas. In addition to this there will also be some bus stop suspensions during certain phases of the works and bus operators will be using the next available stop, again these will be clearly marked on site.

One phase of the resurfacing works will require the closure of Station Road. To further mitigate disruption during this phase TfL has agreed with Lewisham Council to undertake these works at night between 21:00 – 05:00.This phase is scheduled to begin on the 15th February with completion programmed for the 26th February. For the duration of the works pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.
