Signal failure blocks almost entire Woolwich and Bexleyheath Southeastern lines

A signal failure at Slade Green this morning has led to the almost complete suspension of both the Woolwich and Bexleyheath lines.

Network Rail, who manage infrastructure such as signals, are en route to fix.

Given it’s 6am as I write this the situation will hopefully be resolved soon before most morning peak trains begin running. But Slade Green is a large depot where trains leave to start the day’s running, so this could build up.

If stuck, travel arrangements have been created with TfL modes of transport such as buses and the DLR at Woolwich for ticket acceptance.

Happy Wednesday morning everyone.

UPDATE: Trains starting from Slade Green seem ok. Those coming from Dartford seem unable to run.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.
