A major program of work was conducted by Network Rail over the Christmas and New Year period in Lewisham.
Tracks at the junction just west of the line used by Southeastern services were replaced over more than a week.
Network Rail provided an excellent account of work on their Twitter account:

It’s the latest in a number of changes in the vicinity of Lewisham dating back through recent years.
However, fewer trains will cross the junction since controversial timetable changes commenced last month which see all trains from Woolwich now head to Cannon Street rather than Charing Cross.
The Bexleyheath line lost Charing Cross trains except during peak periods.
Hayes line service now only head to Charing Cross.
Images do an excellent job of showing just how Lewisham is transforming with a number of blocks providing high density living.
These include a tower from Meyer Homes.
Plus Lewisham Gateway which will see a cinema, hundreds of homes and shops.
Other recent developments include a tower that and adjacent block that predominantly houses students.
All developments are car-free with residents expected to heavily use public transport.
