An equal proportion of respondents to TfL's river crossings consultation support the proposal for a replacement ferry at Woolwich and a new ferry at Gallion's Reach (27% each). A replacement ferry at Woolwich could be delivered far sooner and at a substantially lower cost than a Gallion's Reach ferry and is also a far less unpopular option with Bexley residents. Will you therefore add your support to a replacement ferry at Woolwich.

I would like TfL to study all of the issues raised during the consultation, including the rate of support and opposition to each of the options proposed as well as the overall costs and benefits, before the TfL Board takes a final decision on how to proceed
