We ask motorists to bear with us while these works are carried out and we will do our best to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum
Transport for London (TfL) will be carrying out overnight refurbishment works along the A2 in Greenwich from 24 October as part of ongoing maintenance of the TfL Road Network (TLRN).
Between 22.00 and 05.00 on 25-28 October and 1-4 November, TfL will be carrying out overnight resurfacing works to repair the southbound carriageway on Rochester Way Relief Road between Well Hall Road and Riefield Road.
During that time, traffic will be diverted from the A2 via Westhorne Avenue and Rochester Way before rejoining the A2.
The closures have been scheduled to take place while the Blackwall Tunnel is closed to southbound traffic, as traffic levels are lower during this period. Northbound traffic will not be affected during these works.
The northbound Eltham Tunnel will also be closed overnight on 24 and 31 October to carry out upgrade work to the tunnel's lighting systems.
The works will be carried out between 22.00 to 05.00, with traffic diverted from the A2 at the Danson Interchange via Blackfen Road, Eltham High Street and Westhorne Avenue, before rejoining the A2.
Garrett Emmerson, Chief Operating Officer for London Streets at TfL, said: 'The A2 is a key freight route in and out of London and these works are vital to ensure that all drivers can continue to safely use this important arterial road.
'We ask motorists to bear with us while these works are carried out and we will do our best to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum.'
During these refurbishment works, TfL will keep motorists informed of closures and diversions through roadside message boards and local radio broadcasts.
