Woolwich foot tunnel
The Woolwich foot tunnel is a tunnel crossing under the River Thames in East London from Woolwich in the London Borough of Greenwich to North Woolwich in the London Borough of Newham. The tunnel offers pedestrians an alternative way to cross the river when the Woolwich Ferry service is not operating. Both entrances to the tunnel are Grade II listed buildings. Greenwich Council started work to upgrade both this tunnel and the Greenwich foot tunnel on 19 April 2010. The works will reduce leakage, improve drainage and see the installation of new lifts, CCTV, communication facilities and signage with a scheduled completion date of March 2011. During the works, the tunnel will close on Monday to Friday daytimes, when the Woolwich Free Ferry is available as as alternative crossing.

Construction
The tunnel was designed by Sir Maurice Fitzmaurice and built by Walter Scott & Middleton for London County Council and opened by Lord Cheylesmore, Chairman of the LCC, on Saturday, 26th October, 1912. In many respects it is very similar to the nearby Greenwich foot tunnel, being accessed by lifts and stairs from buildings featuring glass domes. This tunnel too is glazed with white tiles (although many have been defaced). The tunnel has been fitted with a leaky feeder system to permit operation of mobile phones. The tunnel is 504 metres long.

Will Crooks
Its creation owed much to the efforts of working-class politician Will Crooks who had worked in the docks and, after chairing the LCC's Bridges Committee responsible for the tunnel, would later serve as Labour MP for Woolwich.

Bin service
The bin service operates Monday to Saturday, 7.30am to 6pm and Sunday, 9am to 4.30pm.

South entrance
The south entrance is now somewhat hidden behind the Waterfront leisure centre.
