Lower Thames Crossing supplementary consultation - Walkers cyclists and horse riders

Closes 25 Mar 2020

Opened 29 Jan 2020

Overview

Walkers, cyclists and horse riders

At statutory consultation, we explained our intention to, where possible, maintain and improve the walking, cycling and horseriding network in the area affected by the Lower Thames Crossing. Since then, we have carefully considered the feedback received, and have engaged further with local authorities and other stakeholders.

We’ve developed a detailed set of proposals for maintaining, improving and upgrading the walking, cycling and horse-riding network

More Information

We have also carried out additional analysis, looking at potential improvements to routes for walkers, cyclists and horse riders, as well as access to public transport.

This has helped us to develop a detailed set of proposals for maintaining, improving and upgrading the walking, cycling and horse-riding network in the vicinity of the project.

This section includes maps showing our proposals and how they link with the existing network to provide opportunities to access other areas.

For the purpose of describing our updated proposals, we have split the route into eight sections:

  1. Realignment of National Cycling Route (NCR) 177.
  2. Recreational routes around the southern tunnel entrance.
  3. Improvements to Muckingford Road.
  4. Improvements around the A13/A1089 junction.
  5. Improvements around Orsett Fen and Ockendon.
  6. Improvements to North Road crossing.
  7. Thames Chase Community Forest proposals.
  8. M25 junction 29.

NOTE: Throughout this section, we will refer to the Lower Thames Crossing as ‘LTC’.
