The Dartford Crossing is one of the busiest traffic routes in the country. We are consulting on a new crossing which would reduce demand on the Dartford Crossing and provide a 90 per cent boost to road capacity across the river east of London

We would like to hear your views about the proposed new motorway that will connect Kent, Thurrock and Essex through a tunnel beneath the River Thames.

Since the Government announced the preferred route in April 2017, we’ve been listening to residents, community groups, businesses and other organisations which has helped develop the plans.

This consultation is the latest stage in these plans and is an important opportunity for you to shape the Lower Thames Crossing.

To have your say, follow this link http://www.lowerthamescrossing.co.uk/haveyoursay to find more information and to access the response form. Please tell us what you think by 23:59 on 20 December. If you have already taken part please disregard this email.

You can also subscribe to email alerts and stay in touch via Twitter – @LowerThames – to hear about the latest developments.
