I just took a cab back from Lewisham because it was so congested in the area that more buses than those routes were being badly affected. The driver said that with the A2 closed at Deptford Bridge and Creek Road in Greenwich closed too it's a bit chaotic. Pedestrian access is also affected.

Deptford Broadway is open westbound now.

No right turn into Gh.

Wasn't there another fire in that very same row of shops recently?

Seems a bit suspicious.
