East London MPs have today called for the Mayor of London to publish a planned consultation on the issue of a new bridge in east London.
The letter was sent from six MPs and lays out why new crossings are needed to needed in the East to further aid economic regeneration.
Commenting on the letter, Jim Fitzpatrick, MP for Poplar and Limehouse said:
“We need more action on East London River Crossings now. Instead of pursuing a vanity project in the West Boris needs to build bridges in the East. We’ve seen spectacular regeneration in recent years and for this to continue we need the right infrastructure to support it.
“Crossings will mean more jobs, more growth, less congestion and a brighter more prosperous future for East London.”
