Rotherhithe Tunnel shut for “tree pruning”. Long delays in Greenwich

There is heavy traffic across Rotherhithe, Deptford and Greenwich today as the Rotherhithe Tunnel is closed for tree pruning work.

It should reopen within the hour but then close again tomorrow for much of the day.

There are queues along Lower Road through Deptford towards Greenwich.


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.

Another option is via my Patreon account by clicking here

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

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.

    Yep, the tunnel is closed from 0900-1600 tomorrow. Evelyn Street was a disaster today and presumably will be tomorrow.
