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.

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

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
