Roadworks near school

15 February 2024

Dear Parents / Carers,

We had this notification just as we broke up last week.  This is likely to affect travel times to and from the school over the coming weeks particularly for those coming from the Bexleyheath direction, please allow additional travel time for this. I have asked the bus garage for any information about changes to routes or schedules, if and when we receive any more information we will pass this on to parents.  


I am writing to advise you of our upcoming project to upgrade the gas network pipes in and around Bourne Road, Bexleyheath. We are replacing our old metal gas mains and services with new plastic pipe. This essential work will ensure your community continues to receive a safe and reliable gas supply.

Our contractor, JDT Utilities, who will be completing this project on our behalf, will start work on 12 February for approximately six weeks.

The network of pipes we need to replace are under the carriageway and to comply with road safety regulations we will need to close the lane in the road travelling toward Bexleyheath, Westbound from outside 111 Blendon Road to outside property 183 Blendon Road while we carry out our work. Access will not be available to the Drive or Penhill Road going south. Parking spaces will also be restricted during this time.

Access will remain for residents and businesses; however, we may need to restrict this at times.  

A diversion will be in place coming from the A2 and from Danson Underpass. 

Once this work has been completed, we will be moving further along the road.

A web page can be accessed at Bexley, Blendon Road | SGN Your gas. Our network. Where we will update our progress and plans as we work.

We are working collaboratively with the surrounding businesses to keep them aware of any changes to our work plan.

Thank you for your patience and consideration during this time.

Ms S Short 

Executive Business Manager
