TfL has warned drivers that the Blackwall Tunnel will be part-closed in January and February, as works continue on the east London river crossing.

The tunnel will shut southbound traffic across the weekends of January 20-22, January 27-29, February 10-12 and February 24-26 to help support works to the northbound carriageway.

Across the weekends, the Blackwall Tunnel will be closed for southbound traffic and drivers will need to take alternative routes.

Northbound traffic will not be affected by these closures as traffic will be diverted through the southbound Blackwall Tunnel.

However, there will be no access to Tunnel Avenue from the A102 at Pear Island across the weekends due to the works.

To help drivers cross the river, the Woolwich Ferry will run a service every 15-20 minutes between 8am and 7pm.

From 8pm on each Friday until approximately midnight on Sunday during each closure, bus route 108 will not cross the river and instead will operate as two services either side of the river, terminating/starting at Canning Town and North Greenwich. During this time, customers are advised to use the Jubilee line to cross the river.
