HC Deb 11 March 1996 vol 273 cc470-1W
Sir Michael Neubert

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to increase transport capacity between central London and Greenwich. [18903]

Mr. Norris

Transport links between central London and Greenwich will be substantially improved by both the Jubilee line extension, which is under construction, and the proposed extension of the docklands light railway to Lewisham. Together with members of the River Thames working group, which I chair, the Government are also considering a report by London First on the potential for improving access to Greenwich by boat and ferry services via the River Thames. We are also considering the responses received to our consultation document on possible river crossings to the east of Tower bridge.
