§ Mr. Austin-Walker
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to his answer of 16 July 1992,Official Report, columns 861–63, what further work has been undertaken on the options identified in the east London rail study phase 2.
§ Mr. Norris
I understand that work has focused on a Thames crossing between the royal docks and Woolwich and that a joint London Transport—London Docklands development corporation study has been looking at the local and more strategic impact of such a link. Improved access to London City airport by the docklands light railway and improved local links between the royal docks and Barking remain possibilities and will be the subject of further studies.
