The developers behind the £1.5 billion Silvertown scheme announced by Mayor of London Boris Johnson today say the remoteness of the location is not an issue and the completion of Crossrail will help the project.
"We already have 3.5 million people a year coming to this site each year via the DLR to visit excel our neighbours next door and the arrival of Crossrail in 2018 is going to make this site much more accessible with the City of London being just ten minutes away and the West End only 15 minutes."
