Roads users are suffering continued delays following two serious water leaks in Bexleyheath, which mean that Thames Water has had to carry out unforeseen emergency repairs on two busy routes - writes bexley.gov.uk.
Water repairs causing delays for road users
Gravel Hill– Thames Water have now repaired the water leak between the junctions with Latham Road and Halcot Avenue, but the road cannot be fully reopened yet because the leak caused serious damage to the adjacent carriageway. Thames Water are on site repairing the damaged carriageway today (Tuesday 10 October) and the road will be reopened to two way traffic assoon as possible. In the meantime, the temporary traffic lights that have had to be put in place are being manually controlled to ease the flow of traffic.
The repair in Gravel Hill is not related to the work being carried out by the Council in the town centre.
Barnehurst Road/Erith Road– Thames Water are working to complete the repair work as soon as practicable. The road closure and traffic lights will need to remain until this is done and the road is safe to reopen.
Enquiries about the work should be directed to Thames Water customer services on 0800 980 8800.
