TRAVEL - ROADS: KENT A2 Londonbound accident

There is queueing traffic after an accident involving three cars and a lorry on the A2 London bound near Swanscombe Cutting between A2260 (Pepper Hill / Northfleet) and B255 (Bluewater / Bean), congestion on A2 to A227 (Tollgate Services, Gravesend). All lanes have been re-opened. The vehicles are all on the hard shoulder now.



Trains hit by signalling problems

Rail passengers endured Monday morning travel woes today with a number of commuter services suffering delays.

The worst of the difficulties was at Fratton in Portsmouth where a signalling problem led to delays to trains to Wales and to the London stations of Victoria and Waterloo.

Passengers travelling with the First Great Western, South West Trains and Southern train companies were affected by this problem, with some travellers experiencing delays of up to 60 minutes.

Services into another major London station - Paddington - were also held up, by a signalling problem at Maidenhead in Berkshire.

"This has been another miserable morning for commuters with services into London wrecked yet again."
