DETAILS of how more than Â£9bn of Government cash is to be spent in the Thames Gateway have been revealed.
The largest regeneration project in Europe, the Thames Gateway stretches both sides of the river from Canary Wharf to Southend in Essex and Sittingbourne in Kent.
Its delivery plan envisages 160,000 homes, 225,000 jobs, new colleges, parks and heritage areas.
It is anticipated the Greenwich peninsula will get 10,000 of the jobs, with nearly 8,000 in Belvedere and 7,000 in Dartford and Gravesend.
Transport in the Thames Gateway will get Â£100m from the Government's Â£300m community infrastructure fund and the proposed schemes include new roads, pedestrian access, cycle and car parking facilities at Dartford station.
Northfleet station will also be rebuilt, increasing capacity.
There will be a range of measures to improve links to north Lewisham and the l00 year-old Greenwich and Woolwich foot tunnels will be modernised.
Projects already announced include Crossrail, to connect east and west London, and doubling the capacity of the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) to Lewisham by 2009.
When the DLR extension to Woolwich is complete, it is expected to generate 64,500 sq m of retail space and 6,000 homes.
The Gateway is expected to get at least 27 new or refurbished secondary school buildings and there will be new school places provided as the population grows.
Lewisham will get 10 new Sure Start children's centres, Bexley will get seven and Greenwich six.
Town centres, including Erith, are being improved with more green spaces.
