Brockley Cross works on hold until after the Paralympics

Work to remodel Brockley Cross has ground to a temporary halt as a result of the hiatus on road projects in place during the Olympic period, Lewisham Council has confirmed.

The road in the centre of Brockley Cross remains to be raised, level with the pavement, to slow traffic and part of Geoffrey Road is due to become one-way, to stop drivers turning right straight on to a pedestrian crossing.

Work started way back in March and has been moving at a glacial pace and was supposed to have been completed before the start of the Games.

In related news, the Council reports that "apart from a few coping stones that need to be replaced, the [remedial]works at Brockley station are now complete."
