AN £11.5 million renovation of two 100-year-old tunnels under the River Thames has started.

Greenwich and Woolwich pedestrian crossings will undergo the work during the next year. In Woolwich the tunnel will only be closed during the daytime, from 6.30am to 8pm Monday to Friday and users are encouraged to use the free Woolwich ferry.

A Thames Clipper service will work at Greenwich while the tunnel is closed at night operating until 1am between Masthouse Terrace Pier and Greenwich Pier.

Greenwich tunnel will be closed Monday to Friday from 9pm to 6am.

Both tunnels will remain fully open during the weekends and the works, which began on Monday are expected to finish by March next year.

This Sunday Greenwich tunnel will be closed until 12.20pm for the London Marathon as repair works have made it unsafe for large quantities of users. A free Thames Clipper shuttle will operate from Greenwich Pier to Canary Wharf from 10am to 12.30pm.
