The Transport for London options report on River Crossings states that a toll of around £2.50p on the Blackwall Tunnel would halve non peak direction traffic, but the high level of excess demand makes it "difficult to make accurate predictions of the effects without more detailed work on local driver attitudes". Will you give the go ahead for this work, so that this option can become an option within the public consultation?

TfL is undertaking survey work among drivers to try to better understand the potential responses from drivers to both any new infrastructure and the potential introduction of charges.

The potential use of tolls at river crossings is included within the public consultation, and would be the subject of more detailed consultation should this option be taken forward further.
