London Chamber adds its voice to official calls for Silvertown Tunnel

London's largest and most representative business organisation has joined local businesses and residents in registering as an "interested party" in the building of a new tunnel at Silvertown.

London Chamber of Commerce and Industry has long advocated the need for more river crossings in East London and believes that new fixed crossings are needed at Gallions Reach and Belvedere as well as Silvertown.


Janette Whitey, Chairman of East London Chamber of Commerce and Industry said: "We believe more fixed river crossings are crucial in order that London can reduce congestion and keep up with a growing population.

"A new tunnel at Silvertown will help unlock the potential in east London and benefit London as a whole.

"This is not just a transport project but can underpin further regeneration."

Today (31st August) was the final day for registering as an interested party with the Planning Inspectorate.
