The Lower Thames Crossing is a proposed new motorway connecting Kent, Thurrock and Essex through a tunnel beneath the River Thames. The crossing under the Thames will be the longest road tunnel in the country and, at 16 metres in diameter, one of the largest bored tunnels in the world. A new road will link the tunnel to the A2 and M2 in the south, and the A13 and the M25 in the north.
It will provide much needed road capacity across the river east of London, and will transform journeys throughout the south east region and beyond.
Highways England is hosting a stand at the Centre for Engineering and Manufacturing Excellence (CEME Campus) on Tuesday 13 November 2018 from 8.30am – 6.00pm. The stand will provide information about the project and the current consultation on the proposals, and a Highways England team will be on hand to answer any questions you have. Come along to find out more about what the project could mean for you, and how to take part in the consultation. Conversations with residents, community groups, businesses and other organisations have played a vital role in developing the proposals to date. This is your opportunity to shape the Lower Thames Crossing before planning consent is applied for.
