Important travel news

Supporters making their way to Wednesday evening's Barclays Premier League fixture against Birmingham City by road from south of the River Thames should note the following information.

The Blackwall Tunnel will be closed to southbound traffic between 9pm on Wednesday and 5am on Thursday to allow essential work to be carried out in the northbound bore of the tunnel.

Motorists should therefore take an alternative route. Options include the Rotherhithe Tunnel, Dartford Crossing or Tower Bridge.

Alternatively, fans could park south of the River Thames and use the Docklands Light Railway to North Greenwich and continue their journey by Underground.
