Serious incident around Blackheath funfair closes A2

The A2 in Blackheath has been closed after an incident around the site of a funfair on Blackheath.

A large number of emergency service vehicles are on scene.

This is the second major incident this afternoon causing long delays in the area, after a pedestrian being hit by a lorry on Lewisham High Street earlier this afternoon.

TfL state disruption to buses, with this noted for route 53:

Buses will miss stops from ‘Vanbrugh Park/Stratheden Road’ to ‘Lewisham Road’ please allow additional time for your journey.

The fun fair is due to open tomorrow.

    I really think that traffic lights should be installed at the roundabout since selfish drivers cause log jams by ignoring the keep clear box and preventing those wanting to cross the junction from going forward.

    Thanks for the report about the accident in Lewisham town centre. I figured something major had happened since there was a lot of slow moving traffic and re-routed buses on Burnt Ash Road.

    I have to agree. I think it’s now time to install traffic lights at this roundabout.
