Blackwall tunnel toll charge?

Is there currently a charge and if so what is it? I've tried googling this but have found different answers.

Are you sure you're not thinking of the Dartford Crossing, which does have a toll?

I wasn't - but my sat nav might have been. Googling also turned up suggestions that a 2 pound fee was considered fairly recently for the tunnel but didnt say if the idea had been scrapped or introduced.

Will there be a charge from 1 January 2015, and can it be paid by setting up an account (like the Dartford Crossing?

It would need a major piece of legislation for a toll/charge to be introduced for any of the London tunnels or bridges.

I think you can forget the idea of a charge by Jan 2015

There was talk of charging to use the Blackwall Tunnel a few months ago. Nothing has come from it yet, so, in the meantime and for the forseeable future it is free to use.

I think Part III of The Transport Act 2000 takes care of that.
