A consultation on updated plans for the new Lower Thames Crossing will start next week. The ten-week consultation will start on Wednesday 10 October and run until Thursday 20 December.
Some 47,000 people had their say in the previous consultation on the proposals – a record for a UK road scheme. We will be seeking your views on an updated, more detailed design which will maximise the project’s huge benefits connecting Essex, Thurrock and Kent.
The Lower Thames Crossing will ease pressure on the existing Dartford Crossing and will add extra resilience to the road network. The updated plans also include significant changes to minimise the impact on local communities and the environment.
There will be 25 public information events; being held across Kent, Thurrock and Essex, and our mobile information van will visit 30 locations to help people understand more about the proposals and put any questions directly to the project team. At each event, specialists will be on hand to explain the proposed route, how it would be built and operated, and how Highways England plan to minimise the impact on the local environment and community. All information will also be available online.
