Bromley bridge strike halts Southeastern services

There are no trains on the Bromley North branch line after a heavy impact on a rail bridge earlier today (Monday 14 February).

Police have closed the road and Network Rail are on site – though it will take some time to resolve given the severity of impact.

A lorry hit the bridge, located on New Street Hill near the junction of Burnt Ash Hill.

Southeastern state “Trains are currently unable to run between Grove Park and Bromley North due to a road vehicle colliding with a bridge at Bromley North earlier today. This is expected until end of day.”

Tickets are being accepted on local buses.

  • And so the Bromley North branch was converted to a single line track forever, as NR cannot justify rebuilding the bridge back to double track
