London First comment on TfL’s river crossing consultation

Commenting on TfL’s consultation Baroness Jo Valentine said:

“We welcome this consultation, but let’s be clear. East London needs at least one new river crossing. A tunnel at Silvertown would contribute to regeneration and growth as well as providing much-needed relief to the Blackwall Tunnel. There are various financing options that will need to be weighed up, but the economic case for building it is already made and the sooner work can begin, the better for London.”
