It appears that the connection issues at Kidbrooke station have finally been fixed. All my journey history has updated to show the correct touches. I travelled via Kidbrooke this afternoon and initially it didn’t seem ok as there was no sign of the touches half an hour after making them (it’s usually updated within 5 minutes for rail touches). But then hey presto, everything was there. I also had a response from Southeastern twitter telling me that it had been fixed, so fingers crossed it’s now ok.
I have to admit to being a little disappointed at the length of time it’s taken. It started going wrong on 6th September and I personally reported the issue on 29th September. So that’s either 3 weeks or over 6 weeks depending on when you want to start the clock. Southeastern were also a bit fed up as they displayed a notice above the Pelger Square validators directing complaints to TfL.
