Infrangendo le regole / Breaking the rules (Greenwich foot tunnel, London, England)

Regno Unito, Londra, Greenwich foot tunnel, Estate 2011

 

Il tunnel pedonale di Greenwich è situato sotto il Tamigi nell’East London e collega Greenwich (London Borough of Greenwich) a sud con l'Isle of Dogs (London Borough of Tower Hamlets) a nord.

Il tunnel è stato costruito tra il giugno 1899 e agosto 1902. Il tunnel andava a sostituire un servizio di traghetti costoso e spesso inaffidabile, e aveva lo scopo di permettere ai lavoratori che vivono sul lato sud del Tamigi di raggiungere i loro posti di lavoro nei docks di Londra e nei cantieri situati nella zona di l'Isle of Dogs.

 

The Greenwich foot tunnel is a pedestrian tunnel crossing beneath the River Thames in East London, linking Greenwich (London Borough of Greenwich) in the south with the Isle of Dogs (London Borough of Tower Hamlets) to the north.

The tunnel was constructed between June 1899 and August 1902. The tunnel replaced an expensive and sometimes unreliable ferry service, and was intended to allow workers living on the south side of the Thames to reach their workplaces in the London docks and shipyards then situated in or near the Isle of Dogs.
