On the 12 January 2015, services that stop on the Greenwich Line are generally unable to serve London Charing Cross. This is due to the Thameslink Programme that will form a barrier between Greenwich Line and the London Charing Cross Lines at London Bridge. London Cannon Street is planned to be open at all times from December 2014 for services from this line and New Cross. A single track fly-under is being built on the viaduct between Deptford and London Bridge but it's unlikely to be used for frequent services to Charing Cross.
Passenger services on the line are operated by Southeastern using Class 376, 465 & 466 trains.
The current service pattern (as of January 2015[update]) is as follows:
Off-peak & Saturday:
- 2tph between London Cannon Street & Dartford
- 2tph between London Cannon Street & Slade Green, continuing to London Cannon Street via Bexleyheath Line
- 2tph between London Cannon Street & Slade Green, continuing to London Cannon Street via Dartford Loop Line
