Commuters face a troubled journey home this evening with more problems at London Bridge and the Jubilee line suffering severe delays.
Southern and Southeastern are suffering major delays to, from, and via London Bridge and commuters are advised to seek alternative routes.
The Jubilee line is suspended between Wembley Park and Willesden Green because of a faulty train at Neasden with severe delays on the rest of the line. Congestion on the platforms is also having a knock-on effect on the Overground at Canada Water
People looking to attend the WWE wrestling at The O2 have been warned to leave extra time for the journeys.
The Jubilee line has seen delays since the morning. These were compounded by a signal failure at Edgware Road, which led to a part-suspension of the District line as well as severe delays on the Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines.
Southeastern Trains has just handed out £25 vouchers to its 4,000 staff for implementing changes to the timetable to handle the London Bridge troublespot – but their passengers were some of those facing 90 minute delays this morning.
Mick Cash, general secretary of transport union the RMT, said: “We have warned repeatedly about the impact of cuts to maintenance and staffing and those warnings have been rubbished and ignored by Tube bosses working to a political agenda handed down by London Mayor Boris Johnson.”
Alasdair Coates, Network Rail’s route managing director for south east England, said: “I apologise for what has been a very difficult journey to work for people this morning. We are investigating what on initial inspection appear to be several unrelated faults on the lines between Deptford, New Cross and London Bridge.
“Many of those faults were repaired before 8am but by that point the damage was done and trains were severely delayed as a result. We recognise the importance of this station to London and we will do everything we can to find out what went wrong.”
