§ Mr. Evennett
asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether there are currently any plans to extend the Docklands light railway to Thamesmead.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
At present LRT have no plans to extend the Docklands light railway to Thamesmead. The possibility of further extensions to the railway, including one to Thamesmead, is being considered in the context of a study of the future development of public transport in the Docklands, jointly commissioned by London Regional Transport and the London Docklands Development Corporation. We shall look closely at any proposals which emerge from this work.
