View Full Version : Fastest throughHeathrow Central Area Tunnel

Following on from the "Fastest driven car" thread:-

Who has been the fastest in the Heathrow Central Area tunnel. Regularly got up to around 90mph or so (MGB) Northbound late at night in the 70's. Never quite cracked the ton due having to slow down for a reasonably sedate exit.

I think I managed to get up to the speed limit once........traffic wasn't bad on that day.

Went through the Northern pedestrian tunnel @ 15mph on a motorbike @ 0315hrs in the 70's ! No normal public use of southern one in thos days, although available for diversion & Northern road lanes were closed for repair. Lived in Hertfordshire at the time so got police permission to go thro , to save massive detour !
