Work on the £5.2million Bromley North Village project began last week.

Aiming to provide an economic boost to the area, the money will go towards improved pavements, lighting and a pedestrian exit from The Hill car park.

Roads will be closed as work takes place, with East Street expected to remain off-limits to drivers until November 30.

The north end of Bromley High Street will also have one lane closed until the same date, after work started in that area on Tuesday.

Market Square will be subject to disruption next year as Bromley Council hope to have the improvements completed by Christmas 2014.

Cllr Stephen Carr, council leader, said: “These major changes to Bromley North underline our commitment to improving town centres and ensuring people want to shop, trade and spend time in the area is part of this approach.

“This year is already proving to be critical with a number of exciting projects underway and we are playing our part to ensure that Bromley remains an enticing place for business and investment.”

Pedestrians will have access to all disrupted roads throughout, and works will be postponed in December for Christmas trading.

Detailed maps of all diversion routes are available online, visit bromley.gov.uk/bromleynorthvillage.
