Greens would stop this polluting waste of money
Green Assembly Member Caroline Russell has revealed that Sadiq Khan’s Silvertown Road Tunnel in East London will cost Londoners £2 billion, nearly THREE TIMES the original price.
The current Mayor has committed Londoners to paying £65 million a year for 25 years under a contract signed last year, which Greens warned was a huge mistake.
Sian says: “The Mayor has not been straight with Londoners. Last year he told us the tunnel would cost £1 billion. This is outrageous and I stand with local communities opposing this environmental nightmare. Road building is so wrong in a climate and air pollution crisis. We don’t need a belching, polluting new road tunnels through some of London’s most deprived areas. As Green Mayor I would cancel this massive waste of money.”
