TfL 'working closely' with Thames Water to repair leak

The A12 Blackwall Tunnel Northern Approach is currently closed southbound between the Bow Interchange and the East India Dock Road due to a burst water main underneath the carriageway.

We are working closely with Thames Water, who have committed to work 24/7 to get the leak repaired as quickly as possible and have offered our own contractors to help them reopen the road as quickly as possible once it is safe to do so.

Burst water main causes long delays at Blackwall Tunnel

A burst water main at the Blackwall Tunnel caused delays for hundreds of motorists this morning. The approach to the tunnel heading south is still closed while emergency repairs are carried out. Closures are in place between the Bow interchange and the A102 Blackwall Tunnel junction.
