No toll for Blackwall Tunnel says Mayor Boris Johnson

London Mayor Boris Johnson has dismissed suggestions that the Blackwall Tunnel linking the east and south-east of the city could be tolled.

Transport for London (TfL) is currently consulting on ways to make journey’s across the River Thames west of the Dartford Crossing easier – including a proposal for a tolled Silvertown Tunnel between the Greenwich Peninsula and Silvertown.

The consultation warns that if the Silvertown Tunnel is built and subject to tolling, the Blackwall Tunnel would also need to be tolled – otherwise there would be serious delays at Blackwall as traffic diverts to avoid paying.

However Mayor Johnson tweeted as part of his “Ask Boris” session today (30 October): “ We won’t toll Blackwall as long as I am mayor – but new tunnels need funding.”
