Default WALKING through the Rotherhithe Road Tunnel


I always shut car windows going through there, I can't imagine walking.

My recollection is that the footway through the Blackwall Tunnel was
narrower than Rotherhithe (and with sharper bends more fun with passing
buses and lorries). But that is from nigh on 60 years ago when one
mainly breathed good healthy petrol fumes with, err, lead.

I believe buses that ran through regularly had reinforced tyres that coped
better with hitting the kerbs.

Actually, doing this is on my bucket list. It must be London’s worst
“tourist experience” (unless, that is, anyone knows better).

I've run through it; while I'd happily recommend doing it once, I
woudn't recomend doing it twice.
