Il Tamigi divide Londra e ponti e tunnel hanno sempre avuto un grande impatto per la cittá.
Il nuovo sindaco ha approvato un progetto per un nuovo Tunnel ad est di London Bridge che non solo migliorerá il traffico ma creerá nuove opportunitá per il mercato immobiliare.
Il Silvertown Tunnel previsto per il 2023 dará l'opportunitá per una rigenerazione urbanistica delle zone intorno a Greenwich Peninsula e Royal Docks.
For many Londoners, the Thames feels like a border between two countries — especially if you live in the east of the city. There are 34 bridges across the river in the capital, only one of which lies east of Tower Bridge — yet there are more households east of the bridge than west of it. London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s go-ahead for new river crossings in the east aims to redress the balance, while also providing a catalyst for a large-scale housebuilding programme. A report by the Centre for London think tank estimates that bridges and tunnels could open up land for at least 50,000 new homes, cut commuting times and bring isolated neighbourhoods in from the cold, while creating 60,000 jobs and boosting the capital’s economy by £1 billion a year.
