Stricter Enforcement of Rotherhithe Tunnel’s Safety Restrictions

Vehicles that are more than two metres wide or two metres high, or goods vehicles weighing more than two tonnes have been banned from the Rotherhithe Tunnel since September 2018. Since February, enforcement of the weight restriction has been carried out by cameras and people driving prohibited vehicles through the tunnel have been fined up to £130 per day. However, TfL has continued to see a number of repeat offences by prohibited vehicles.

To keep people in the tunnel safe, from 2 December, drivers of prohibited vehicles will now receive a fine for each journey through the tunnel.
