Silvertown Tunnel construction is well underway and one side effect which can be felt is delayed buses heading to north Greenwich tube station as narrowed roads cause congestion.
Millennium Way sees bus routes 108 and 188 heading from east Greenwich to the tube station and is now halve the previous width.
The road was formerly two lanes and is now reduced to one. With events returning to the o2, this has started to crop up on more occasions.
Congestion is particularly bad when events are being held at the o2 and Magazine venue located off Millennium Way.
Current lane closures are expected until November 2021.
Other closures of roads in the area will then occur until at least 2025.
Yesterday I covered how affordable housing could be reduced by 525 if the tunnel sees any delays to its planned 2025 opening date.
TfL project that upon opening, the tunnel will increase congestion in many parts of Greenwich borough.
They state they will run additional buses through the new tunnel.
