THURROCK MP Jackie Doyle Price rose on the floor of the House of Commons to ask a question on the lower Thames crossing.
Ms Doyle Price said: “Yesterday, Highways England published the latest plans for the proposed lower Thames crossing. In that set of plans, the proposal for a Tilbury junction, which would divert HGVs from my constituency road network, has been removed.
“Does the Minister agree that, if we are going to get a road that the community does not want, it is incumbent on Highways England to ensure that it works for us?
George Freeman, Minister of State (Department for Transport)
“My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. I would be delighted to meet her and the roads Minister, Baroness Vere, who is in the Gallery.
