A NEW bridge for east London is at the heart of a submission to the government ahead of the budget later this month.

The London Chambers of Commerce will present its wish-list at an event today with Labour’s business secretary Chuka Umunna.

The submission will focus on how London can grow and prosper, with a new river crossing “to help bring growth to the capital’s most underdeveloped areas” at the heart of the proposal. The budget is due on 19 March.
