From 12 January 2015, services using the Greenwich Line were no longer able to serve London Charing Cross. This is due to the Thameslink Programme work, which removed the flat crossing at Spa Road Junction, located between London Bridge and Deptford. As a consequence of this, trains serving the Greenwich Line are no longer able to reach the line running into Charing Cross. To compensate for the loss of this, London Cannon Street was given revised service times, with it being open seven days a week and until the end of service.
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
