Woolwich ferry approach
Woolwich ferry approach
Downstream from Central London, there are not many places for road traffic to cross the Thames. East of Tower Bridge, the crossings are tunnels (at Rotherhithe, Blackwall and Dartford), a bridge at Dartford and here at Woolwich, a ferry.

In this image, cars are queueing for the ferry. The car park to the left of the image is a holding area for when the queues get longer, to try to prevent queueing vehicles from blocking the roads in Woolwich itself. A ferry boat can be seen at the pier on the opposite side of the river, at North Woolwich.
