Bexleyheath Employment Trends
The award-wining Bexleyheath Town Centre Revitalisation scheme has rejuvenated the space – facilitating access, regulating traffic and making commutes safer. Reports reveal that the scheme has been received well by local businesses and is bound to enhance future prospects. As a part of the scheme a live public transport information system has been installed at the town centre.
