Inside the Greenwich Foot Tunnel
Inside the Greenwich Foot Tunnel
The foot tunnel connecting Greenwich with the Isle of Dogs was open in 1902. It forms part of National Cycle Route 1 but as the bore is only 2.7 metres in diameter, cycling is prohibited and cyclists must push their bikes. This short section at the northern end was damaged by bombing in World War 2, and the subsequent repair has reduced the diameter even more. The only comparable tunnels in Britain are the Woolwich Foot Tunnel TQ4379 : Woolwich Foot Tunnel and the Tyne Cycle and Pedestrian Tunnel NZ3266 : In the Tyne Cycle Tunnel where the separate cycle tunnel has a larger bore of 3.7 metres.
