Thames Gateway Bridge

Volume 482: debated on Tuesday 11 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what recent discussions his Department has had with (a) the Mayor of London and (b) Transport for London on the proposed Thames Gateway Bridge; and if he will make a statement. (232929)

Department for Transport officials have regular discussions with Transport for London regarding the proposed Thames Gateway Bridge. The Secretary of State and the Mayor met on 9 July and discussed the matter but further work was needed in order to address the issues raised at the inquiry. The proposed Thames Gateway Bridge is a Transport for London project however, and is therefore a matter for the Mayor. It would be inappropriate for me to make a statement.
