§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will state the number of vehicles he expects to use the Woolwich ferry in the year 1986; and how many such vehicles originate or are destined for the London boroughs of Newham and Greenwich.
§ Mrs. Chalker
I do not have a forecast for vehicles using the Woolwich ferry in 1986, but an origin and destination survey carried out in 1984 indicated that at that time some 3,500 vehicles used the ferry on an average weekday. Of these, four fifths had origins or destinations outside Newham and Greenwich, with a fifth having both origins and destinations in those two boroughs.
