Blackwall tunnel to again see full weekend southbound closure

The Blackwall tunnel will again close this weekend from a minute past midnight on Saturday 13 April until 5am on Monday 15 April.

It’s the latest closure related to Silvertown tunnel construction work.

Northbound traffic will be able to run though the tunnel though the 108 bus route is running short on either side of the Thames. South of the river it will terminate at North Greenwich station. North of the Thames it will operate between Stratford and Canning Town station.

108 will terminate at North Greenwich bus station.

Passengers can change onto the Jubilee line between north Greenwich and Canning Town and see their tube journey refunded according to Transport for London.

Southbound buses will divert over Tower bridge in the early hours of Monday morning when the Jubilee line is not operating.

Work on Silvertown tunnel is expected to complete in 2025. In recent days I’ve been up on the cable car to see progress from above, with cut and cover tunnels one of the bigger recent changes.

A post on that will be uploaded soon.

  • At least SE are running a train service this weekend. The previous closure coincided with engineering works, the one before with shutdown of the Jubilee Line, as well as rail strikes.

  • SE London is most isolated part of London and tfl not worrying at all about people who lives in Greenwich and Kent areas. You have to pay to go through Elizabeth Bridge, train usually is late or cancelled, Woolwich ferry is another disaster. There’s no Tube or overground etc…
