Mayor continues to defend the environmentally damaging Silvertown tunnel project

In a written question to the Mayor, Caroline again raised the issue of the heavily polluting proposed Silvertown tunnel - and pointed out this was nowhere in the Mayor's 2016 manifesto, whereas the Rotherhithe-Canary Wharf bridge was promised and has been scrapped.

Unfortunately the Mayor continues to defend this £1bn project. Caroline is deeply concerned that the environmental impacts of this project are not being fully considered, and that the huge cost of the project could be better used to improve and develop our public transport network.
