Have your say on Lower Thames Crossing

Have your say on the proposed Lower Thames Crossing

THE Lower Thames Crossing is the proposed new road including a tunnel beneath the River Thames, connecting Kent, Thurrock and Essex. On the south side of the Thames, the new road will link the tunnel to the A2 and M2 in Kent. On the north side, it will link to the A13 in Thurrock and then junction 29 of the M25 in the London Borough of Havering.

It is part of the biggest investment in the UK’s roads for a generation, and is the largest single roads investment project in the UK since the M25 was completed more than 30 years ago.

The areas the crossing will serve are already home to economic hubs and key UK ports but its impact has the potential to be of benefit to businesses across the whole of Essex and wider. Once completed it will provide alternative links to and from the south of the UK to other parts of the East of England, the Midlands and the North.
