London First: Silvertown Tunnel contract is a significant milestone
25 November 2019
Commenting on Transport for London’s award of the Silvertown Tunnel contract to the Riverlinx Consortium, John Dickie, Director of Strategy and Policy at London First, said:
“The new Silvertown Tunnel is a vital investment in London’s transport infrastructure.
“The signing of these new contracts represents a significant milestone in redressing the balance which has seen East London severely short changed when it comes to transport options to cross the river.
“As well as providing direct relief for the chronically-congested Blackwall Tunnel, it will ensure residents of East London are able to access jobs and business opportunities on the other side of the river.”
