Put off indefinitely. An earlier poster in this thread suggested not until CP8 or 2029, although the gated level crossings on the Medway Valley line will probably be updated before then. All the signalling on the route is already colour light signalling albeit with Absolute Block Aylesford to Wateringbury inclusive.

It explains why the crossover just on the down side of Rainham level crossing was removed the weekend before Easter. Before seeing this diagram, I thought that the new signal at the down end of platform 1 would allow trains from the coast to terminate at Rainham and return whence they came. Not so: it is just a permanent red signal to allow trains from London to terminate in platform 1 as well as the new bay 0.
[minor edit, to make more sense]
Re the "normal" position of the points at Rochester Bridge Junction: it is as I would expect (but then I'm only a passenger, not a signaller). The line to Victoria is the main line (30 mph cf 20 to Strood) and carried the greater number of trains (at least, until HS1 opened - now an approx equal split).
