DREADED roadworks at a busy junction have been postponed by two weeks. Work at the junction of Old Lodge Lane and Brighton Road, Purley, will now start on Saturday June 15, rather than tomorrow as originally planned. Transport for London said the works were still due to finish mid-September, as planned. A spokesman added the change followed "feedback from the local community" and would allow wider notice of the plans. He added: "People who use the local road network will consequently have additional time to plan their journeys in light of the works." The changes are designed to speed up traffic going through the junction. Among the measures are a new left-turn slip road onto Brighton Road.
