A PETITION has been launched today (Nov 30th) against the building of a new Thames Crossing in Thurrock.
The petition called "Stop a new Thames Crossing being built in Thurrock" comes
It can be found at: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/113715
"We want the government to look into alternative locations for the new crossing, away from Thurrock. The local roads are already overloaded. Building a new crossing could potentially cause a triangle of traffic, ‘trapping’ people int the area, causing even more issues.
"The Government are looking into building a new Thames Crossing, with both of the preferred options in Thurrock: Option A would be for a crossing to be built next to the existing bridge and Option C would cut through miles of green belt, destroying wildlife reserves and taking away green space."
We will chart the petitions progress as it hopes to get to 10,000 signatures.
