Long term A2 roadworks begin near Bexleyheath

Transport for London have begun work on the A2 Rochester Way at the Danson interchange.

Upgrades are planned near the junction leading off towards Bexleyheath with an overpass seeing extensive work undertaken. Roadworks are expected to last at least five months.

Work got underway this past week with traffic towards Kent backing up as lanes are closed.

TfL warn bus routes serving the area such as the B15 could be disrupted.

    This will also have an affect on routes B13 and B14. Route B14 Serves Danson Park Road and the Danson Interchange and currently only operates every 30 minutes with small single decker buses.

    With the current restrictions on passengers numbers allowed on buses due to Covid-19 which I believe is 7 passengers on this size of bus this will really affect passengers this winter.

    TFL may need to run an emergency schedule on route B14 with extra buses for the duration of the road works. Route B14 also serves Queen Marys Hospital in Sidcup.

    TFL ploy to get everyone back on trains

      I suspect Frank is correct. A cynical ploy indeed, particularly for those who have to commute into London before trains are running or use vehicles to transport goods or materials. These people are collateral damage, I’m sure most are aware that five months to undertake this work is totally arbitrary.

      Queues back to there have been a daily occurrence for years, which is a core reason adding another tunnels worth of traffic via Silvertown is a bad idea.
