  • RiverLinx consortium signs contract with Transport for London on the Silvertown Tunnel, the first major road investment in this part of London in 30 years.
  • The signing of contracts will allow RiverLinx to appoint sub-contractors and suppliers to support delivery of the project, and begin the process of obtaining local stakeholder, government and environmental consents for this project.
  • The project is the UK’s first road tunnel to have dedicated bus lanes, and from day one passengers will be able to cross the river on one of around 37 buses an hour during peak periods. This is a significant upgrade to public transport in the area.
