A2 accident blocks London-bound traffic at Kidbrooke

An accident on the A2 at Kidbrooke this morning is seeing queues build in the area.

Only one lane is open causing congestion back along the A2 as well as onto the south circular.

Buses including the 335 are delayed.

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.

  • i’m assuming that if Silvertown tunnel gets to go (which I oppose) an accident like this on the A2 would cause even more congestion, 2 tunnels worth of traffic including vehicles too large currently, churning out diesel fumes. It’ll be a long while before all the HGV’s are Electric, and how many premature deaths around the tunnels before that happens?

  • Plumbers arrived at 7.55 am but radiators didn’t until 11.45 because of this breakdown.

    The Silvertown tunnel is to make this even worse.

    It is to add currently unseen extra high large continental sized lorries, with no changes to the existing roads coming off the tunnel. Will lorries be able to get off the A2 in Greenwich borough as if they do their their length means they will often block exits, junctions or roundabouts and intimidate and block sight lines for cars as well as junctions. If they stay on they won’t ease traffic.

    Greenwich council is here to help Greenwich residents , there is absolutely no advantage to Greenwich residents of the Silvertown tunnel , so why? Central and West London get no such lorries until the M25, so why East London?

  • It’s Greenwich leaders want to climb the greasy poll. In the beginning once its open the north of the Thames will see improvements but it brings Greenwich borough very little.

    The Greenwich leader still doesn’t oppose and given his constant selfies, he seems more concerned with his image and himself and thinking long beyond. An MP elsewhere? Many in the ruling Greenwich Council Labour group dictating policy right now live in the south of the borough though growth is in the north. Something has to give.

  • Sadly the Silvertown Tunnel is here to stay. To stop the project now and then have to put right the sites where work as already started on both sides of the river. Will be a huge waste of public money which could have been spent elsewhere on front line public services. No one will be willing to take the responsibility for this and face the wrath. So sadly the Silvertown Tunnel will go ahead if we want it or not.
