Description

An obstruction on the track at Greenwich is causing disruption to services running through this station. Trains may be delayed, cancelled or revised.

Disruption is expected until 09:00.

What's happened?

There is an obstruction on the track in the Greenwich area, which is currently blocking the line heading away from London through the station.

How does this affect my journey?

Trains can't currently run via Greenwich away from London, so services are being diverted via alternative routes where possible, but some services may be cancelled as a result.

You can use your ticket on the following services at no extra cost to help you complete your journey this morning:

  • DLR services between Greenwich and Lewisham, or via Woolwich Arsenal.
