The Thames Gateway Crossing, previously called the East London River Crossing is a proposed crossing of the Thames at Gallions Reach. The A2012 number was reserved for it in April 2004.

Originally proposed as a tunnel on the 'C ring', it became part of Ringway 2 plans. The new development at Thamesmead in the 1970s meant that the crossing was kept on the agenda, but there were lots of opposition to getting it built in the 80s and 90s, due to the route of the road southward to the A2 at Falconwood.

More recently, designs for a bridge were made, only to be shelved. These would have ended on the A2016 in Thamesmead, rather than carrying on further. Recently, plans for a ferry to be built in the next few years, to be upgraded to a fixed crossing at some later date have been proposed.
