On Sunday we had to close the Greenwich Foot Tunnel as there were crowds of people walking and cycling through where it’s impossible to keep two metres apart. The tunnel is an important route for essential workers travelling to and from work, so it’s open again now for key workers only. We’ll be keeping a close eye on it and possibly closing it again over the Easter weekend, or sooner if it gets too crowded.
Greenwich is a popular tourist destination for lots of good reasons, but this is a national emergency, not a holiday. There is a real risk that the Government will ban outside exercise if people don’t stick to the rules, so only use the tunnel if you’re an essential worker getting to and from work.
