Yellow Box junctions, Parking Charges and 20 mph zones


Bexley Labour supports road safety and measures to help traffic flow and yellow box junction enforcement is a key in helping to achieve this outcome, they are positioned in locations where queues form and block movements through junctions and these can only be installed with agreement with the police. Instead Bexley Conservatives have added a further seven yellow box cameras with very little publicity, nothing is mentioned about these locations in the Bexley magazine, yet pages have been devoted to their fight against the ULEZ expansion.


Recently it has been announced the council spent £147,000 on a court case against the ULEZ expansion, a case they were never going to win, Bexley Labour did not support this waste of taxpayers’ money, which Bexley Conservatives are taking out of the councils already depleted reserves.


Why do they not want you to know about this, because they are projecting an annualised income of £387,000 to introduce seven new camera locations.


Below are the locations of the newly installed yellow box junction cameras.

Bexley Road / Victoria Road, Erith

Station Road / Jubilee Way, Sidcup

Station Road / Lower Station Road, Crayford

Bellegrove Road / Central Avenue, Welling

Westwood Lane / Groombridge Close, Welling

Bellegrove Road / Edmond Road, Welling

Bellegrove Road / Deepdene Road, Welling

In Bexley, CCTV is used to enforce:

  • school restrictions (zig zags)
  • bus stop/bus stand clearways
  • and moving traffic contraventions, such as:
    • banned right, left, and U turns
    • no vehicle entry
    • yellow no stopping box junctions
    • vehicle type access restrictions


Parking Charges went up 30% in the middle of a pandemic, in March 2021, without any modelling or assessment on the effect on local businesses. Bexley Labour Group voted against this increase, as indeed did one brave Conservative Councillor against these poorly timed increases.


In 2013, Mayor of London, Boris Johnson and Bexley Conservative Councillors approved changes to Bexleyheath Town Centre, which led to confusion for many at this unusual road layout, which was described as ‘shared space’ and the road surface in Arnsberg Way was dug up and replaced after only one year, in addition a 20 M.PH speed limit was introduced, yet Rishi Sunak now is opposing this policy introduced by Bexley Conservatives.


Many residents have expressed concern at the state of  crumbling highways and pavements in Bexley, this is due to cuts in the road’s maintenance budget, which is now less than in 2017 and cuts to the budget dealing with potholes, yet Bexley Conservatives voted against the Labour group amendment in 2023/24 budget setting meeting to invest more money in our crumbling highways, this would of seen an extra £1/2m from monies already allocated from new development in Bexley, invested in pavements and roads  .


Bexley Conservatives still do not publicly condemn the vandalism against ULEZ cameras in Bexley, which is also damaging council infrastructure, if you are strongly opposed to something then you should use the ballot box, not enable criminals with balaclavas and cutters.
