Dartford crossing bridge closed due to high winds

Expect a fair of traffic around Greenwich today as the Dartford crossing bridge has been closed due to gusts up to 60 mph. And it will last quite some time if forecasts are correct.

At least six hours of high winds are forecast meaning southbound traffic is diverted into one tunnel halving capacity both north and southbound.

Blackwall approach traffic

That normally sends much traffic to Greenwich – where the Big Vitality half marathon is also closing streets.

Strong winds are also having an impact there with a music stage being cancelled.
