Blackheath rail tunnel closed due to “electrical fire”

No trains are currently running between Charlton and Blackheath after what Network Rail describe as an electrical fire.

Trains on the Woolwich line to Charing Cross via Lewisham are diverted via Greenwich.

Staff are on site investigating the issue.

UPDATE: the line has reopened around 3pm

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

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
