DISRUPTION: Fire blocks railway line near Maidstone
Monday 4th October 2021
A FIRE is causing disruption to the Maidstone line this afternoon.
A Southeastern spokesman said: "Due to a fire coming from electrical cables near Paddock Wood trains between there and Maidstone West/Strood are being disrupted.
"As the saying goes - 'there's no smoke without fire'. So until the electrical engineers can attend and carry out repair work, trains between Tonbridge/ PaddockWood and Maidstone West cannot run.
"You can use Arriva buses route 6, between Paddock Wood and Maidstone at no extra cost."
