The Future of the River Thames

The Future of the River Thames

Gavin Barwell, the Member of Parliament responsible for the state of housing and development in this country, has completed a visit to representatives of the Port of London in order to debate and investigate the future of the River Thames in London. Indeed, the river’s popularity as a tourist attraction is also due to its logistical and transport potential. The fact that there are regular tourist trips along the River Thames as well as transported goods on riverboats passing along the surface of the water emphasizes the river’s importance as a landmark in the city that still has its uses and potential to serve the economy well.

Indeed, Gavin Barwell’s visit involved the investigation of the Thames Vision project, an initiative that will enable planners and developers along the river to see how the future of the river will progress over the course of the next two decades to come. Through this, it will be easier to see what role the river will have to play in the City of London in the next few years to come and a number of developments and projects are planned to ensure that the location will not be left out of various business and investment opportunities that will occur in the near future. Barwell also said that the meeting was useful in that it helped to clarify what plans will be put into place to secure the future of the river as a pathway for tourists and locals to the region, who view the Thames as a wonderful way of enjoying the natural habitat by walking along the river.

Therefore, the use of the river pathway as a method of transport (by foot as well as by bicycle) cannot be underestimated and as London’s population is set to increase, it is necessary that access to the river for the population is preserved in the future years to come.
