Borough Road and Southwark Bridge Road closures after ‘debris falls from railway bridge’

Sections of Borough Road and Southwark Bridge Road are closed in both directions this afternoon after ‘debris’ reportedly fell from the overhead railway bridge.

TfL said that Borough Road is closed in both directions between St George’s Circus and Newington Causeway and Southwark Bridge Road between Marshalsea Road and Keyworth Street for emergency bridge works.

Debris is understood to have fallen from the bridge above, sparking Network Rail to investigate yesterday evening.

According to ward councillor, Victor Chamberlain, the incident was caused after “heavy rail clips fell from [the] railway bridge.”

Delays should be expected, say transport authorities.

Bus route 388 is currently terminating at St Georges Circus following the Borough Road closure, TfL also says.

The News has contacted Network Rail, which manages the railway, for comment and will update this article with further details once we get them.
