Chadwell councillors pleased with news that Heath Road/Baker Street not to be shut off

Heath Road Grays

LABOUR councillors in Chadwell St Mary were celebrating after project managers for the Lower Thames Crossing confirmed that they will not be closing a vital through road.

Residents were alarmed to be told that Heath Road and Baker Street could be shut but it appears there has been a change of heart.

Chadwell St Mary councillor, Gerard Rice told residents; “Tim Jones of Highways England, Project Director for the Lower Thames Crossing announced to a packed council chamber that Highways England will not shut Heath Road / Baker Street

” I welcome this announcement and look foward to Highways England announcing news regarding the tunnels around Chadwell St Mary and Thurrock. I hope their plans will
reduce air pollution and COPD levels in the area and not increase.”


  1. No change of heart – just that the film of the proposed route didn’t show Heath Road continuing. A lesson in Labour spin and hype in the run up to the local elections. How to conjure up a victory over nothing. Fake news swallowed as truth by the masses…
