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.
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.
UPDATE- Buses serving the Lewisham area are experiencing delays of up to 20 minutes. This is due to a burst water main at the junction of Loampit Vale/Thurston Road which has caused flooding on the road surface. Please take extra care and allow more time for your journey.
