The Royal Borough of Greenwich and Newham Council have begun a major campaign for vitally needed fixed river crossings between East and South East London.
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.
