Thames Crossing consultation reaches halfway mark

Businesses and individuals still have five weeks left to have their say on latest plans for the Lower Thames Crossing as the consultation reaches the halfway mark.

Lower Thames Crossing plans

The plans include a 2.4 mile-long tunnel under the Thames between Gravesend and Tilbury

Billed as Britain’s biggest road project since the M25 was built, the multi-billion pound crossing will nearly double road capacity across the river Thames and almost halve northbound journey times at Dartford Crossing when it opens to traffic in 2027.

The latest plans will create a new, three-lane dual carriageway connecting the M2 near Rochester and the M25 in Essex between North and South Ockenden. This will include a 2.4 mile-long tunnel under the Thames between Gravesend and Tilbury – said to be the longest road tunnel in the UK and the third largest bored tunnel in the world.

The consultation lasts until Thursday 20 December. To have your say, click here.
