Severe reduction in Southeastern services all day today

There is ongoing disruption today to Southeastern expected to last all day due to track problems in New Cross.

The issue is limiting trains to Charing Cross with the vast majority of services to the station on all three Dartford lines.

Network Rail state the broken rail will be partly fixed by the afternoon, with the rest of the work carried out overnight to be ready for tomorrow.

The DLR can be used from Woolwich though that’s of limited value given trains still run to Cannon Street.

Southeastern and Network Rail state the issue will last all day.

    • The Networkers have an unbeatably comfortable ride. Pity the replacement trains didn’t adopt the same suspension.

    • Those wanting Cannon Street will have to change at London Bridge. I don’t see much value in the DLR from Woolwich as it takes its own sweet time getting to anywhere.

      @Roden Richardson: I would rather have a marginally less comfortable ride, although I have plenty of padding, than dirty worn out trains. I like the 707 class train – wider aisle, improved information board as well as being light and bright.
