"The Jubilee line is also currently operating close to capacity during peak times."?? The author has clearly never tried to board an eastbound Jubliee line train before 9am at Bermondsey station! It is currently operating beyond its capacity. It would be great to have a new river crossing - I would never walk or cycle via the Rotherhithe Tunnel but I have seen brave souls do this.
I've cycled through the Rotherhithe tunnel quite a few times. It's not the most pleasant experience and the incline coming back out at either end is quite steep so it can be hard work to get up and out at a pace that doesn't p-off the drivers behind (not that this bothers me).
You do get the occasional idiot driver down there who tries to overtake - it is way too narrow for that to be safe at any point and the general speed of traffic down there is probably no more than 15mph anyway.
