Fire hits Blackwall Tunnel

Blackwall Tunnel has been evacuated after a fire inside the northbound tunnel.

TfL traffic cameras show the blaze which has led to traffic build up heading to Blackwall from Greenwich.

Images show many people out of the cars on the approach road:

It goes without saying that congestion is building up and avoid the area if possible.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    It’s going to be closed until 0400 at least as the road is having to be resurfaced.
    I actually saw idiots walking along the road on the southbound carriageway and so they had to close that for a while.

    That is my nightmare scenario. I have taken the 108 bus through the tunnel on occasion and hated every second. I will never use the tunnel again.
