Mayor of London's Transport Strategy Consultation

Sep 27, 2017

Reshaping transport in London is a priority for the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, who wants to create a city that accommodates for all Londoners. The new draft Mayor's Transport Strategy sets out his plans to transform London's streets, improve public transport and create opportunities for new homes and jobs over the next 25 years. The strategy sets to build on the vision for a better London that the Mayor outlined in ‘A City for All Londoners’, and takes forward the approach set out in ‘Healthy Streets for London’.

The strategy quotes:

Number 5 Bus - Public Consultation

Aug 09, 2016

Over the last year a huge campaign has been run across the borough to get the number 5 bus rerouted so that it stops at Queen’s Hospital in Romford. The number 5 goes straight through the borough and would be of great benefit for people, meaning that residents would only have to take one bus rather than changing – or making the walk from Romford town centre.

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.

Proposed new bridge linking Rainham to Belvedere.

Jul 24, 2014

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

As your Member of Parliament I am writing and asking you to raise your concerns, asLondon Riverside (BID) Ltd have confirmed that ‘without doubt this proposal will have a major impact on property (land & rental values) and traffic congestion’.
