HS1 near Ebbsfleet, I reckon. Either that or the rail bridge at Maidenhead.
All London buses: 23 hours 25 minutes (with Adham, David, Josh and Tangy)
Holds some alternative challenge records. Not sure which ones.

No, neither of those, although the second answer is closer.

Were it not for the third post in this thread, I'd have said the Canary Wharf to Rotherhithe ferry. But I'm stumped otherwise.

Complementary question: which crossing of the Thames costs the least (apart from zero, of course)?

No, sorry. Remember it's closer to Maidenhead than it is to Ebbsfleet...
