It is worthy of note that the Minister of Transport estimates the cost of the East London River Crossing and the extension of the Jubilee Line to Woolwich to be about the same.
Given the choice - either an urban motorway destroying ancient woodland and residential areas or extending the London Underground to an area poorly served by public transport, with one of the lowest rates of car ownership and the highest unemployment in London - I am sure people would say: 'Scrap ELRC and build the Jubilee Line'.
