Both authorities firmly believe that building a new tunnel between Greenwich Peninsula and Silvertown, and a new bridge at Gallions Reach between Beckton and Thamesmead will provide the only viable long term solution to a problem which has long held back economic growth in this part of London.
A bridge at Gallions Reach would improve accessibility to more than 40 sites either side of the river, transforming their development prospects and creating around 20,000 jobs.

Newham Council and the Metropolitan Police have joined forces to target companies that are breaking the law by not paying the National Minimum Wage.
