Silvertown Tunnel Consultation Begins
OK folks, another massive development is about to drop on our doorstep. Please review this introduction from TFL; find an event near you and go to it; and, most importantly, make your voice heard!
The nearest consultation events to East Greenwich are at The Forum, Trafalgar Road, 10am – 4pm, Saturday 10 October and 12pm – 7pm, Tuesday 10 November.
The Silvertown Tunnel is a new twin-bore, dual carriageway road tunnel linking the A102 on the Greenwich Peninsula to the Tidal Basin Roundabout in the Royal Docks area. The scheme includes a new charge to use the Blackwall and Silvertown Tunnels. The charge is necessary to manage demand and ensure that the local road network can accommodate future traffic levels. The charge will also pay for the new tunnel to be built.
To view the proposals and have your say, please see their website.
You may also email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or write to them via: ‘FREEPOST TfL CONSULTATIONS’.
The deadline for comments is Sunday 29 November 2015.
