Chair, I have two quick points. I am very concerned, as the Assembly Member covering the area of Rotherhithe, because there is incredible dependency on that tunnel in my community over in Rotherhithe, which is almost like an island. Rotherhithe suffers from access difficulties anyway. Dependency on the Rotherhithe Tunnel will increase when the East London Line works are underway and the tube tunnel is closed for a very long period of time - about 18 months - so sadly there will be an increase in traffic through the Rotherhithe Tunnel. I therefore make a very strong plea to make sure that if there is any thinking at all going on about changing any of the arrangements for the Rotherhithe Tunnel, that they take that incredible dependency and the future fragility of the transport system around Rotherhithe into account.
Secondly, a short question with my fire service hat on, Mayor. It has not been the practice in this country to put sprinklers in civil engineering structures like train tunnels or road tunnels, but I think that if we are looking at the safety case for road tunnels in London we should be looking at taking best advantage of the modern fire engineering solutions that there are, and not just relying on what are the, strictly speaking, legislative requirements either from the UK or Europe; I think there is much more that could be done to make tunnels safe in the event of accidents.
