Have your say on the proposed Thames River Crossings.

The proposal for new Thames river crossings in East and South-East London is now out for consultation.

The proposals include:—

• A new road tunnel at Silvertown connecting the Royal Docks and the Greenwich Peninsula. It would have the capacity to carry vehicles of all sizes, including buses, and reduce closures caused by over-height vehicles trying to use the Blackwall Tunnel.

• A vehicle ferry at Gallions Reach, linking Beckton with Thamesmead, providing a better connection for road users. The ferry would take about ten minutes to cross the river and could replace the 50-year-old Woolwich Ferry.

Go to to have your say.

Ever thought you could do with a full size pump when your little one just doesn’t work so well. Cyclehoop are installing public bike pumps in London.

None in Havering yet but could be useful if you commute into London.
