A package of measures, that include a new East London road tunnel, hoping to ease congestion in the capital has been announced by London mayor Boris Johnson.
The plans are particularly aimed at improving access to East London. They include new vehicular river crossings, a tunnel at Silvertown, a new ferry at Gallions reach and a crossing at Dartford.
The road tunnel linking the Greenwich Peninsula and Silvertown, at the Royal Docks, would have capacity to take 2,400 vehicles an hour in each direction.
The ferry crossing will link Beckton and Thamesmead at Gallions reach and could be delivered by 2017.
