Commuters faced lengthy delays after a lifting bridge became stuck.
The Kingsferry bridge on Sheppey developed a fault that meant it was stuck in a raised position.
It was left around 15cm off the ground, meaning no vehicles could get across.
Motorists were forced to divert and trains had to wait while engineers worked to fix the problem.
Southeastern tweeted to announce the problem, which occurred at around 2.14pm.
A replacement bus service ran between Sittingbourne and Sheerness from around 3pm.
Thankfully, the fault was finally fixed after almost four hours and trains and traffic are now flowing freely again.
