These are exciting times to visit, live and work in South East London. The Mayor’s Transport Strategy highlights a number of key initiatives to help people travelling to and around the area.
There are a number of committed projects underway in the region including the Elizabeth Line which will add around 10 per cent capacity to London’s rail network as well as the recently approved Silvertown Tunnel which will help relieve London’s most congested bottleneck that is the Blackwall Tunnel, as well as providing significant cross river bus improvements.
TfL is also considering a range of exciting proposals including an extension to the Bakerloo Line to Lewisham and potentially beyond, possible extension of the DLR across the river to serve Thamesmead to complement Peabody’s proposals for new homes in the area and a pedestrian and cycling bridge linking Canary Wharf and the Rotherhithe area.
Matthew Yates, TfL’s Head of Projects and Consents, will present these proposals at our February Breakfast Meeting, taking place at The Clarendon Hotel.
Hot buffet breakfast included in price.
