Silvertown Tunnel 13 May 2018

Construction of a new twin-bore tunnel to carry a dual two-lane road under the Thames between North Greenwich and Silvertown. The tunnel will relieve the nearby Blackwall Tunnels which run significantly above their capacity for much of the day and are prone to severe congestion and disruption. The scheme is being funded by borrowing against the receipts of a new toll which will apply to both the new Silvertown Tunnel and the existing Blackwall Tunnel, the cost of which will be matched with the tolls on the crossing at Dartford.

A406 Bounds Green Improvement 21 July 2010

Upgrade of an existing single-carriageway stretch of A406 North Circular Road to a dual carriageway standard. This Transport for London project is a watered down version of the improvements planned but never implemented by the Highways Agency. It involves less property demolition and is a fraction of the cost, but is unlikely to be grade-separated. Even so, any extra capacity here is welcome - it is currently a single-carriageway section of an otherwise dualled and grade-separated road in a busy urban area.

A23 Coulsdon Relief Road 26 October 2008

A new single carriageway three-lane road, realigning the A23 away from the main commercial area of Coulsdon, though the new road still passes through the town. It will terminate at a roundabout at each end, and along its length will have a normal traffic lane in each direction plus a special purpose bus, cycle and HGV lane northbound. This was one of the only road schemes approved by anti-car London mayor, Ken Livingston.

A13 Thames Gateway 26 October 2008

Upgrade of the A13 between Barking and Docklands to grade-separated dual carriageway route. Despite Transport for London's anti-car policies, the scheme continues to go ahead because it is part of a private-finance DBFO contract that was let when the A13 was in the hands of the Highways Agency.
