Flooding hits near Lewisham station

Parts of Loampit Vale in Lewisham near the station have flooded this afternoon.

Water is still emerging onto the street with staff on site directing traffic.  One east-bound lane is closed. Traffic is backed up towards New Cross. Bus disruption is expected with a major bus stand located nearby on Thurston Road.

Much work was carried out alongside new towers

This area has seen a few issues with flooding in the past. One reason has been the Quaggy and Ravensbourne rivers which flows nearby.

TfL have just stated there are currently delays up to 20 minutes.

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.
