We’re delighted to confirm that transport journalist Christian Wolmar has kindly agreed to be our special guest speaker at the meeting.
Christian is one of the UK’s foremost experts on transport and transport policy; needless to say, he’s implacably opposed to the Silvertown Tunnel. He’s also seeking the Labour Party’s nomination to be its candidate for Mayor of London.
Last year’s consultation may be over, but it’s a busy time for our campaign. We’re finalising plans to carry out an air quality study north of the river, as well as supporting community groups with studies south of the river.
We’ve also submitted evidence to MPs on the Transport Select Committee, who heard Greenwich Council leader Denise Hyland and Newham mayor Sir Robin Wales reaffirm their backing for the tunnel on Monday.
We’re also drawing up new plans to keep on spreading the word against the tunnel – making sure local politicians know that local people are opposed to this blight on our communities.
There’s plenty to do, so if you want to get involved in our campaign, please come along and say hello. Here’s the agenda for the meeting.
There’s a licensed bar at Mycenae House, which will also be open after the meeting. It’s 10 minutes’ walk from Westcombe Park station (trains from Cannon Street, London Bridge, Greenwich and Woolwich Arsenal) and close to bus routes 53, 54, 108, 202, 380 and 386.
So please come along – it’ll be great to see you! As always, if you have any questions, please drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org.
