THE NEW lifts in Greenwich Foot Tunnel have experienced a difficult second week with service outages reported and a pane of glass shattered.
A spokesperson for Greenwich Council confirmed that the lifts were out of order for "a short time" on Tuesday.
Unconfirmed reports of further problems surfaced on Wednesday, and by Wednesday evening it emerged that a pane of glass on the lift enclosure at the northern side had been shattered.
The council revealed in February that it has replaced the main contractor on the refurbishment project, for which it received a grant of £11.6 million, because of the "severe delays to the programme."
Update: Reports on Twitter that the south-side lift was also at around 6.10pm.
