Transport for London has launched a consultation on proposals for a new river crossing to the east of the capital.
As well as possible new ferry services, options include a bridge either between Rainham and Belvedere or between Beckton and Thamesmead.
London’s population is forecast to grow to 10m by 2030, and 11.5m by 2050, increasing demand for already congested crossings at Blackwall and Woolwich.
There are separate plans for a tunnel at Silvertown and a Lower Thames Crossing in Dartford.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said: ‘Delivering new river crossings to the east is going to be vital to the future success and prosperity of the capital.
“They have the power to unlock areas for development, creating jobs and new homes, as well as making London a much better connected place.”
