Multiple car crash near Plumstead bus garage

At least three cars have collided in Plumstead at the gyratory near Plumstead bus garage.

One car has perched itself on guard rails along the road.

Police have closed Western Way and the queue stretches back past the now-closed Princess Alice pub towards Thamesmead shops.

The gyratory has seen a number of accidents in recent weeks – with some due to poor parking. It’s unlikely to be a factor at this spot though.

The gyratory is possibly in line for removal in coming years as part of a 1,800 home scheme.

I’m running an Xmas appeal for the site. It’s tough keeping it going whilst paying (very expensive) London rent and having a young family. Details here.

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

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

Another option is via my Patreon account by clicking here

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you
