An accident on Bugsby’s Way is causing long tailbacks across Greenwich and Charlton this afternoon.
Traffic is slow moving throughout much of the area causing long delays. TfL have warned of long delays on buses. Roadworks in Woolwich are adding to the issue.
Buses serving the Greenwich area and Woolwich area are currently experiencing servere delays following Bugsby Way SE7 eastbound closure due to a road traffic collision, Blackwall Lane SE10 Northbound closure due to Thames Water works and roadworks on Artillery Place, SE18.

Some have wondered if this is a pre-cursor to Ikea opening in 2019.
Earlier today I put up a post showing bus use falling in London despite a rising population and all other forms of transport growing. Slow speeds and traffic is blamed.
