The construction of the Rotherhithe road tunnel under the River Thames between Rotherhithe and Shadwell was begun in 1904 and completed in 1908. It was excavated using a Greathead-Moir shield. Air locks allowed the work to proceed under pressure October 1906.

The Rotherhithe Tunnel at South Side of The River Thames in Rotherhithe. I can remember going up the stairs in the 1950s, not necessary these one’s, just to see where it came out.
