Live Rail Incidents

Here is a list of live rail incidents affecting the UK rail network right now together with a bit of information.

No trains through Bexleyheath until Monday 18 February

On Monday morning, 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 Monday morning. 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 15 minutes in both directions, due to heavy traffic along the route journey times may take longer than advertised.

You can use your ticket at no extra cost on:
