Bring the Riverboat to Wapping

Bring the Riverboat to Wapping

A petition was started in May for investment in Wapping Pier so it can be used to cross and travel along the river, adding an additional stop to the Clipper Riverboat service.

As well as helping residents it will bring more visitors to the area giving a real boost to local businesses.

A Riverboat could make a huge difference to Wapping – putting it on the map for visitors by making it more accessible and easing overcrowding on the 100 bus.

Local campaigner Geoff Juden has been working with the GLA and local transport providers since last year to bring the Riverboat to Wapping.

London Mayor, Boris Johnson cites one of his aspirations as extra infrastructure to support river services, including extra piers so this really could happen if we all support the proposal.

    I attended the meeting back in May and agreed to build the wappingriverboat.com website. Taking it from there I also set up the paper petition. We’ve had a great response – over 1500 people have signed up so far. I’ve lived In wapping for about 10 years. I’ve got no political agenda or other interest other than to improve the transport links. True tfl aren’t looking to stump up any cash at this time however we’ve had a number of positive meetings with the main interested parties and there is a very real possibility of this progressing, I’ll be sending a fuller update and updating the website shortly.

    Agree, it’s a great idea for Wapping to have a website. It will really help tell everyone about things like the riverboat as there’s no other way of really finding out what goes on

    The meeting that Geoff of the Liberal Democrats and myself, John Foster of the Green Party had in May kicked off the idea. But we have to make it a reality, this website is a great way to raise the profile of the campaign.
