Queues build as Blackwall Tunnel closed

The Blackwall Tunnel has been closed in the past hour causing long queues to build up in the northbound direction.

Recovery of a vehicle is ongoing, with queues back to Sun in the Sands roundabout.

East Greenwich is also slow going


Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

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.

    • Only last week I was driving back when tailbacks started by the old Hays building on the A12. Pushing slowly forwards I could see that someone had broken down near the tunnel approach and the police were in attendance. Inching closer I could see that the hood was up, a warning triangle was displayed and a frustrated woman was arguing with the officers. As my car finally managed to get past, I heard the officer repeating the following in that tone of voice they reserve for these situations
      ‘… this is not a breakdown, you have run out of petrol’.

      Unfortunately its one of the more common occurrences on that stretch; that, and a terrified electric bicycle rider trying to haul his Deliveroo bag and wondering if he should have set his maps app to cycle rather than car.
