High winds also causing Southeastern rail issues – blanket speed restrictions imposed

Transport disruption is not just limited to Dartford bridge being closed due to high winds but also rail this morning as Network Rail implement a blanket 50mph speed limit on the network in London and Kent.

Trees have fallen onto tracks this morning at:

  • Elmers Ends
  • Broadstairs
  • Stonegate
  • Snodland
  • Deal

With high winds expected until at least 4pm it could well be a day of even more disruption.
