No trains through Bexleyheath until Monday 18 February

Train companies affected

Southeastern

Routes affected

Bexleyheath Line - Between Slade Green / Crayford / Dartford / Barnehurst and London Charing Cross / London Cannon Street / London Victoria

Description

Last Monday, there was a landslip on a railway cutting between Bexleyheath and Barnehurst, resulting in 300 tonnes of debris and trees falling to the track. As a result, the line is blocked in both directions. 

Because of this, Network Rail have had to close the Bexleyheath Line (between Blackheath and Barnehurst) to allow for repairs to take place.

The latest update from the teams on site indicates that work is progressing well and we're expecting the line to re-open in time for tomorrow morning, Monday 18th February. We'll keep you updated here with the very latest information as the work progresses. You can view images of the landslip here.

How does this affect my journey?

No trains will operate on the Bexleyheath line until the line re-opens. Trains that would normally operate via Bexleyheath will be diverted via Sidcup or Woolwich, with some trains cancelled in their entirety.

Diverting the trains means we can provide extra capacity on the Sidcup and Woolwich lines as we know these trains will be extremely busy.

What do I need to do?
All service alterations for today, Saturday and Sunday are now showing in journey planners.

We're running replacement buses between Lewisham and Dartford via Bexleyheath and you can use your ticket at no extra cost on London Buses on routes between Lewisham and Dartford, so that you can travel to alternative stations on the Woolwich or Sidcup lines. The buses will be operating approximately every 30 minutes in both directions. At times, due to traffic along the route, journeys may take longer than advertised.

You can use your ticket at no extra cost on:

  • London Underground between London Victoria, London Charing Cross, London Bridge and London Cannon Street
  • Docklands Light Railway on reasonable routes between central London, Lewisham, Greenwich and Woolwich Arsenal
  • Thameslink services between London Blackfriars and Gravesend, and between London Blackfriars and Denmark Hill.

For details of London Bus services running to / from and between the affected stations, please use the following links:


For further details please visit: www.southeasternrailway.co.uk/barnehurst

Please be aware that car parks on alternative lines via Sidcup or Woolwich are seeing heavy usage and some are full. Please consider using either the replacement bus service or London Buses instead of driving to alternative stations.

No trains through Bexleyheath until Monday 18 February

Train companies affected

Southeastern

Routes affected

Bexleyheath Line - Between Slade Green / Crayford / Dartford / Barnehurst and London Charing Cross / London Cannon Street / London Victoria

Description

Last Monday, there was a landslip on a railway cutting between Bexleyheath and Barnehurst, resulting in 300 tonnes of debris and trees falling to the track. As a result, the line is blocked in both directions. 

Because of this, Network Rail have had to close the Bexleyheath Line (between Blackheath and Barnehurst) to allow for repairs to take place.

The latest update from the teams on site indicates that work is progressing well and we're expecting the line to re-open in time for tomorrow morning, Monday 18th February. We'll keep you updated here with the very latest information as the work progresses. You can view images of the landslip here.

How does this affect my journey?

No trains will operate on the Bexleyheath line until the line re-opens. Trains that would normally operate via Bexleyheath will be diverted via Sidcup or Woolwich, with some trains cancelled in their entirety.

Diverting the trains means we can provide extra capacity on the Sidcup and Woolwich lines as we know these trains will be extremely busy.

What do I need to do?
All service alterations for today, Saturday and Sunday are now showing in journey planners.

We're running replacement buses between Lewisham and Dartford via Bexleyheath and you can use your ticket at no extra cost on London Buses on routes between Lewisham and Dartford, so that you can travel to alternative stations on the Woolwich or Sidcup lines. The buses will be operating approximately every 30 minutes in both directions. At times, due to traffic along the route, journeys may take longer than advertised.

You can use your ticket at no extra cost on:

  • London Underground between London Victoria, London Charing Cross, London Bridge and London Cannon Street
  • Docklands Light Railway on reasonable routes between central London, Lewisham, Greenwich and Woolwich Arsenal
  • Thameslink services between London Blackfriars and Gravesend, and between London Blackfriars and Denmark Hill.

For details of London Bus services running to / from and between the affected stations, please use the following links:


For further details please visit: www.southeasternrailway.co.uk/barnehurst

Please be aware that car parks on alternative lines via Sidcup or Woolwich are seeing heavy usage and some are full. Please consider using either the replacement bus service or London Buses instead of driving to alternative stations.

No trains through Bexleyheath until Monday 18 February

Train companies affected

Southeastern

Routes affected

Bexleyheath Line - Between Slade Green / Crayford / Dartford / Barnehurst and London Charing Cross / London Cannon Street / London Victoria

Description

Last Monday, there was a landslip on a railway cutting between Bexleyheath and Barnehurst, resulting in 300 tonnes of debris and trees falling to the track. As a result, the line is blocked in both directions. 

Because of this, Network Rail have had to close the Bexleyheath Line (between Blackheath and Barnehurst) to allow for repairs to take place.

The latest update from the teams on site indicates that work is progressing well and we're expecting the line to re-open in time for tomorrow morning, Monday 18th February. We'll keep you updated here with the very latest information as the work progresses. You can view images of the landslip here.

How does this affect my journey?

No trains will operate on the Bexleyheath line until the line re-opens. Trains that would normally operate via Bexleyheath will be diverted via Sidcup or Woolwich, with some trains cancelled in their entirety.

Diverting the trains means we can provide extra capacity on the Sidcup and Woolwich lines as we know these trains will be extremely busy.

What do I need to do?
All service alterations for today, Saturday and Sunday are now showing in journey planners.

We're running replacement buses between Lewisham and Dartford via Bexleyheath and you can use your ticket at no extra cost on London Buses on routes between Lewisham and Dartford, so that you can travel to alternative stations on the Woolwich or Sidcup lines. The buses will be operating approximately every 30 minutes in both directions. At times, due to traffic along the route, journeys may take longer than advertised.

You can use your ticket at no extra cost on:

  • London Underground between London Victoria, London Charing Cross, London Bridge and London Cannon Street
  • Docklands Light Railway on reasonable routes between central London, Lewisham, Greenwich and Woolwich Arsenal
  • Thameslink services between London Blackfriars and Gravesend, and between London Blackfriars and Denmark Hill.

For further details please visit: www.southeasternrailway.co.uk/barnehurst

Please be aware that car parks on alternative lines via Sidcup or Woolwich are seeing heavy usage and some are full. Please consider using either the replacement bus service or London Buses instead of driving to alternative stations.
