Long delays reported across the north of the borough following huge Blackwall Tunnel oil spill this morning

Swathes of SE1 and SE16 are struggling with slow-moving traffic this evening in connection with this morning’s oil spill at the Blackwall Tunnel in Greenwich.

Yellow alerts for traffic are being reported between The Cut at Southwark Station and Blackfriars Road going northbound.

Around the Elephant and Castle, queues are also being reported between the junction and the Brick Layers’ Arms, as well as going up London Road in both directions.

Also affecting the Brick Layers’ Arms, the BBC is reporting delays up Tower Bridge Road going northbound, partly caused by the bridge raising at 5pm.

Transport for London is reporting that traffic heading east along the Old Kent Road up to New Cross, due to road diversions caused by the huge Blackwall Tunnel oil spill that caused it to close at 7am this morning.
