Ongoing lift refurbishments mean that Greenwich Foot Tunnel will not fully re-open until June
DELAYS to refurbishments on the Greenwich Foot Tunnel mean it will open three months later than planned.
Refurbishment work has been taking place at the Greenwich foot tunnel since April last year and it was hoped that work would be complete by March.
However, problems with the tunnel crown mean that work on the lifts is still ongoing, leaving no disabled access. Greenwich Council says 24-hour access to the tunnel will not resume until June.
Stairs in the tunnel are currently open from 6am to 9pm Monday to Friday and from 6am on Saturday throughout the weekend.
The tunnel will be closed southbound on April 17, for the Virgin London Marathon between 10am and midday.
A spokesman for the council said: "The tunnel will be open to people seeking to travel north, so anyone wishing to continue following the marathon can still do so.
"Free travel will be available on the DLR and Thames Clipper for people still wishing to travel south during the restrictions."
