We need a Cross Thames Transit Now

WE NEED A CROSS THAMES TRANSIT NOW
"As long-suffering residents who are experiencing dangerous levels of traffic pollution affecting air quality in Dartford, Gravesend and Swanley we call for faster and greener public transport across the Thames. The proposed Lower Thames Crossing is merely a short term solution which will continue to encourage unlimited pollution from road traffic and would reduce Dartford crossing traffic by just 16 % overall. Instead we urgently need a more effective public transport system to improve the health and well-being of all in North Kent."
We call upon our elected authorities and national government to work together to bring forward coherent proposals for a long term solution.
