Two things. An additional river crossing, which provides capacity equivalent to 30 buses an hour. And something that will become a visitor attraction in its own right....of the emirates cable car?
Again two things. To replace a rail line which was severed by a road project. And to give the Metropolitan line a more central Watford terminus - i.e. closer to where people actually want to go.Also while we're here what's the point of the croxley extension?
Have you ever been to Watford on the Met? I know I haven't specifically because it takes 20 minutes to get to the high street from the Met station - rather than 2 minutes from Watford High Street station! :PAlso while we're here what's the point of the croxley extension?
There are plans to provide a new road tunnel just east of the Blackwall Tunnel (pretty much directly under the cablecar), and to replace the Woolwich car ferry with another one further east at Gallions with all-new approach roads.Quite, it does look nice out on the perninuslar though. Although tbh, I think a bridge would have been more useful, and I'd bet for the same money you could put in an additional bridge to take some pressure of Blackwall Tunnel and provide a route for foot traffic to avoid the 108 that makes some scary turns northbound.
