Transportation Chaos: Fallen Tree Causes Cancellations and Delays on London-Dartford Commuter Route

Commuters traveling between London and Dartford this morning are facing cancellations and delays due to a fallen tree on the tracks.

According to Southeastern, the fallen tree has caused disruptions to all services between London and Dartford via Woolwich. Trains from Dartford to Greenwich have been either canceled or diverted due to the incident, which was first reported on X (formerly known as Twitter) at 5:50am.

The rail company has advised commuters to use alternative transportation options, as their tickets will be honored on other transport links at no additional cost. This includes the DLR between Lewisham and Greenwich, London Underground between North Greenwich and London Bridge, Elizabeth Line between Abbey Wood and central London, and London Buses on reasonable routes between Dartford and Greenwich.

Engineers are currently working to remove the tree and normal service is expected to resume by 8am. In the meantime, commuters are advised to check for updates from Southeastern.

We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.
