    Thank god the Pompey game wasn't on the 23rd, imagine 4000 Pompey fans arriving in Waterloo and trying to get to the ground!

    Not sure if they will manage an extra down train to take the Gillingham fans away, but a half hourly service is pretty inadequate for a match day. Given all Lewisham routes presumably have to go into Victoria there probably isn’t a lot of spare capacity.

    Or carry on to Waterloo and tube to North Greenwich, which I sometimes do if only Victoria trains are available

    I sometimes take that route, but there would be chaos at North Greenwich with thousands of away fans as well!

    Just as well we aren't in the Prem....can you imagine what it would be like with crowds of 25,000+.

  • And don't forget if you're coming by bus or car the new shops are extremely popular.
    The roads around Makro will be manic.

    Yes, bad timing. The roads between Charlton and North Greenwich at 5pm will be gridlocked with Christmas shoppers...

    It would have been sorted pdq because the extra road traffic would have created a gridlock for miles.
  • I thought the traffic was very light today. Normally we have to queue for almost a mile to get off the M25 onto the A2 at Junction 2 & I thought it would be worse today with everyone wanting to go to Bluewater, but at 1.20pm we sailed down the inside lane & don't stop once.

    We were then at the Sun in the Sands roundabout at 1.35pm & usually there is mayhem but again no queues at all.

    Then parking was easy too with plenty of spaces around the ground.

    weird.
  • I arrived after kick off today after the train from Lewisham to Charlton left over 2 minutes early. Bastards
  • Reminder,half -hourly service again from/to Charlton Station,with a Sunday service on London bus services.
