We’re holding two open meetings for No to Silvertown Tunnel supporters in the next few weeks, where you can find out more about what we’ve been doing and what we’re thinking of doing next. If we met you at events during the summer, we’d especially like to see you there. If you’d like to help us, please feel free to come and share your ideas.
So we know how many people are coming along, please let us know you’re coming by registering using the links below.

What else is happening?
We’re expecting a new consultation into the Silvertown Tunnel (and possible Blackwall Tunnel tolling) to come very soon. We’ll be in touch when it comes out, and we’ll also be in touch with ideas for what you can put in any response.
We’ve launched a petition for TfL to extend the London Overground from Barking to Abbey Wood and Thamesmead – the kind of new river crossing east and south east London is crying out for. Sign up here and please respond to the consultation too.
We responded to TfL’s proposals for road bridges at Gallions Reach and Belvedere. (See also Green Assembly member Darren Johnson’s demolition of the schemes, Liberal Democrat Assembly member Caroline Pidgeon’s opposition; plus responses from Greenwich, Bexley and Tower Hamlets councils.)
Finally, especially if you’re in south-east London, please add your support to a Bakerloo Line extension to Lewisham, Catford and Hayes – we badly need more public transport, and we feel these plans should be brought forward.
To find out more about what we’re up to, and how you can help us, please come along to one of our meetings.
