TfL river crossing consultation: Should Blackwall Tunnel be tolled? What new river crossings should we have? Ends 1st Feb

Dawn B in Forest Gate
TfL are running a consultation on river crossings between East and Southeast London.  You can fill it out on

One of the questions is about whether the Blackwall Tunnel and new crossings should be tolled to pay for the new crossings. Rotherhithe tunnel and Tower Bridge would remain free.

Personally I think it is wrong to be charging people in the poorer end of town, it is a tax on historical underinvestment.  I'm pretty sure the bridges further west don't maintain and paint themselves.  Either charge for all of them or charge for none of them.
