Question

I fully support your manifesto commitment to deliver a crossing between Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf. A number of logistical issues have been raised with me regarding placing a bridge in that location. Will Transport for London give full consideration to placing the crossing in a tunnel instead?

Transport for London has carried out a number of assessments to explore a variety of crossing options, including a tunnel. This was reported as part of a recent public consultation and further information can be found at: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/rivercrossings/rotherhithe-canarywharf/

There is a specific factsheet on options assessment, including a summary of our consideration to placing the crossing in a tunnel: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/rivercrossings/rotherhithe-canarywharf/user_uploads/r2cw---factsheet-2---crossing-options.pdf
