THE A12 Blackwall Tunnel is being closed to southbound traffic for five weekends this year in addition to the weekday night-time closures already under way.

The diversions are to allow contractors to take over the ageing northbound tunnel for refurbishment such as upgrading ventilation shafts which Transport for London says cannot be done during weekday night-time closures.

Northbound traffic will use the southbound tunnel while work is carried out, between 9pm on Fridays to 5am Mondays, on June 4 to 7, July 9 to 12 and 16 to 19, September 10 to 13 and October 1 to 4.

Work on refurbishing the original two-lane Blackwall Tunnel, first opened in 1897, is due to be completed by the end of 2012.
