Lower Thames Crossing
The Government has announced its preferred route for the Lower Thames Crossing. The Secretary of State for Transport, Chris Grayling, announced on 12 April 2017 the Government's decision and the response to the consultation by Highways England carried out in 2016.
The Secretary of State's statement can be read here.
More detail on the preferred scheme and the progress of the project is available from Highways England. This includes various weblinks and downloads, one of which is a booklet giving a summary Response to Consultation (pdf 2.9Mb).
The South East Local Enterprise Partnership has issued a statement welcoming the announcement.
TGKP will be issuing a more detailed statement once we have studied the detail, including how we engage with Highways England on the next steps in the process.
