"Mayor sets out plan for 22-mile ring-road tunnel under London" (Good grief)


Link to Evening Standard

"Plans to transform central London with a 22-mile-long underground ring road can be revealed today.

"Costing £30 billion to construct, it would remove tens of thousands of cars from the crowded streets above.

"The Inner Orbital Tunnel would be one of the most ambitious infrastructure schemes ever seen in the city, with subterranean dual carriageways linking key routes, from the A40 Westway to the A12 in the east, and the A1 route north to the A2 running south."
