Rotherhithe road tunnel: southern portal
Rotherhithe road tunnel: southern portal
The tunnel is a single carriageway, i.e. two-way traffic. As an A-road rather than a motorway cycling is permitted but most cyclists consider it too dangerous as there is no room for cars to pass safely.

The inscription above the portal, which is grade 2 listed (LBS number 471268), reads: "This tunnel constructed by the London County Council was opened by HRH the Prince of Wales KG on the 12th of June 1908. Maurice Fitzmaurice CMG, Engineer"
