Here are four photographs taken inside the Strand Underpass in London.
I went to have lunch with a friend today. He works in Bloomsbury and I was driving up from south London via Waterloo, so I crossed the river using Waterloo Bridge and then took the Strand Underpass to get up to Holborn and Russell Square.
I’ve taken photos as I’ve driven through this tunnel a couple of times before, and once again had my camera out today to shoot a couple more and I’ve posted them all here.
Something about this road tunnel just makes me want to take pictures.
The A301 Strand Underpass allows northbound traffic from Waterloo Bridge heading for the A4200 Kingsway to avoid the Strand and Aldwych. There is no equivalent southbound facility. The underpass utilizes the former Kingsway tram subway which closed for tram use in 1952. The tram subway was converted, and the underpass was constructed, by John Mowlem & Co and opened in 1964.
