Landslide near Bexleyheath blocks Southeastern trains with no service all day

No trains will run all day on the Bexleyheath line after a landslip blocked tracks in both directions around Barnehurst.

Pictures from Network Rail show an embankment sliding down onto the track. Tests will now be carried out to study land movement in the area.



Severe disruption is occurring on other lines and road traffic is bad in many areas. There are reports buses are too full to pick up passengers in some areas.

Southeastern state they will look to increase train length on the Woolwich and Sidcup lines though given Woolwich Dockyard and Charing Cross limits trains to 10 carriages it’s hard to see how much extra capacity can be laid on.

Tickets can be used on:

“Buses between Lewisham and Dartford, so that you can travel to alternative stations on the Woolwich or Sidcup lines for alternative trains on these routes

The tube between London Victoria, London Charing Cross, London Bridge and London Cannon Street

The DLR between Lewisham, Greenwich and Woolwich”.

As we know however, these options are often of little use to many given DLR and the tube barely scratches into south east London.
