Blackwall Tunnel closures

We need to close the Blackwall Tunnel to southbound traffic on a number of weekends. This is for work on a new road layout on the A102, as part of the Silvertown Tunnel Project.

Closure dates and details 

There will be no further planned closures in April 2024.

Maintenance closures of the tunnel in both directions will continue as normal. These take place between 01:00 and 08:00 Sunday mornings.

We will keep this page updated if further weekend closures are needed.
