Lower Thames Crossing Statutory Consultation

Closes 20 Dec 2018

Opened 10 Oct 2018


We would like to hear your views on the Lower Thames Crossing, a proposed new motorway connecting Kent, Thurrock and Essex through a tunnel beneath the River Thames. This will provide much needed road capacity across the River Thames east of London, and transform journeys through the South East region and beyond.

More Information

Over the past few years we have spoken with residents, community groups, businesses, local authorities, regulators and other organisations, and those conversations have already played a vital role in developing our plans.

This consultation is the latest stage in our proposal and an important opportunity for you to have your say. This guide outlines the project and explains how to give your feedback.

It describes the detail of the project, how it would be built, how to have your say, and the planning process we will go through before the final decision is made by the Secretary of State for Transport.
