anyone know why Deptford Bridge to Rotherhithe tunnel was completely gridlocked this morning? approx 7.40. added at least 5 mins on my journey which was not what I needed in the downpour. puddles were fun tho....does anyone else stick their feet up and want to shout "weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" as you splash through them? :lol::lol:

    Nope, no idea. Lancaster was flowing nicely. Well, for those on a bicycle. :D

  • Blackwall Tunnel northbound was out yesterday and overnight because, I think, of a car fire - not sure whether it had opened then (or even now). I would guess that's why.

    No idea why there was gridlock, but once my lower half was wet through then some of the bigger puddles were good fun to see if you could make decent sized waves by going through fast enough :D

    Blackwall tunnel was closed again today.

    I dont go through it but saw my motorbike riding mate who got caught up in it giving him a 3 hour commute instead of a usual 45 minutes :? :cry:

    Blackwall tunnel is closed until Wednesday after a fire in the north bound tunnel yesterday.
  • it was gridlock again on the way home. three glorious days of gridlock. fabulous.
    I hope no-one was hurt in the fire.

    Tunnel has fixed early and has re-opened so traffic will be back to normal tomorrow.

    That was something I had to learn *not* to do when I started using SPD's - pulled both feet up forgetting both were attached to the pedals :shock:
