One of the main conclusions of the Roads Task Force (RTF) is that to achieve the overall vision for London, an expanded 'toolbox' of interventions is needed, together with a greater willingness to use the full range of tools within it. New tunnels are something which might offer good potential solutions to some of the problems the RTF has identified and I want to see them considered within this context.

Over the next two years, TfL will undertake work which will provide us with a clearer understanding of the feasibility, potential effectiveness and affordability of more tunnels in London.
