Ah - so that will be why there’s a ton of excavators and diggers in the car park opposite the All Inn One then…

Its a nightmare for west end shop workers like me…I’m going to have a fun journey tomorrow…about 90 mins to get to work :angry:

I think trains will be running from Catford Bridge. I think the notice said trains will not be going to Cannon Street on Sunday.

Looks like trains are running from Crofton Park also to Blackfriars or Elephant and Castle. 171, 172 and 122 take you to Crofton Park I think (definitely 171).

Good luck!

The 122 will definitely take you to Crofton Park.

The 185 will take you to the junction with Brockley Rise where you can wait for the 122 or walk round the corner to also wait for the 171 going north. You can change for the underground at Elephant & Castle.

Anyone taking buses to Crofton Park I would suggest checking with the driver it is stopping at Crofton Park Station as there are roadworks taking place on that stretch of Brockley Rd. Coming back from Lewisham to Forest Hill yesterday afternoon the bus didn’t stop at Crofton Park Station stop as the stop was closed although the next stop opposite the Brockley Jack isn’t too much further down. But I didn’t get the 122 on my outbound journey so I don’t know if the stop in that direction is closed as well.

Stops in both sides coming up to Crofton Park are closed at the moment.

When I’ve used Honor Oak Park station this morning I’ve noticed they’ve replaced the track on the London bound platform. I think they’ve done a great job of lowering the track at the same time, so where there was quite a large gap before it’s now much smaller. Especially those with buggies or suitcases with notice the difference!
