The new tunnel will create a new and improved transport experience for the residents and commuters of East London, and improve reliability of the wider road network in this part of London. In addition over the past 30 years East London has seen significant population growth, this new tunnel will help deliver a vital piece of infrastructure to prepare for London’s future population growth and relieve chronic congestion and poor air quality around the Blackwall tunnel.
"The east of London’s substantial population growth is expected to continue. This project will support this growth by reducing delays crossing The Thames and increasing community access to zero emission transport."
