"Concrete has a huge environmental impact and building another tunnel will only make air pollution across East London worse," said Eleanor McAree, 25, from Extinction Rebellion.
"Air pollution is already at dangerous levels and is affecting the health of children and adults in the area."
London Concrete is a unit of Franco-Swiss group LafargeHolcim. The Silvertown Tunnel under the Thames will link the Greenwich Peninsula and Silvertown. ■
