All TfL managed tunnels briefly closed across London

TfL closed tunnels in London for a period this afternoon after a CCTV fault.

The closure affected Blackwall, Rotherhithe, East India and Limehouse Link tunnels. They state:

“The tunnels were closed briefly due to a loss of CCTV. We monitor each tunnel from this control room and we lost most (almost all) CCTV. As such, for safety reasons, we have to close the tunnels as they would be otherwise unmonitored. Apologies for the delay.”

Traffic is heavy in these areas. This will be sure to get the conspiracy theorists on the go.
