Rainham to Belvedere river crossing report

Feb 09, 2015

Last year Transport for London released plans to build a new toll bridge linking Rainham to Belvedere. The proposal, if implemented would be due for completion by 2025 and the implications are that both construction and completion would have a large impact on the local area. During the initial consultation over 7000 people responded, highlighting they would like to see a new crossing at either Gallions Reach or in Rainham. Only 400 residents of Havering had their say.

Your views: Proposed new bridge linking Rainham to Belvedere

Jan 28, 2015

The Greater London Council and TfL are currently considering a new bridge linking Rainham to Belvedere. The suggested crossing would operate on a toll system similar to that of the Dartford Crossing.

As in all key planning decisions affecting the local community, such as the proposed prison south of the old A13 or the future of the civic centre in Dagenham, I believe it is vital that you are consulted, so that your views are heard loud and clear about this proposal.

As your Member of Parliament I am writing to ask for your views.
