 C2E consultation on proposals to improve transport links - deadline extended

Residents and businesses are being reminded to provide their views on exciting plans for improved, fast public transport services connecting Ebbsfleet, Dartford, Slade Green, Erith and Belvedere with Abbey Wood. So far, over 1,000 views have been provided and there is now less than one week left to have your say.
 
The consultation opened last month and will close on the 3rd March.  It invites feedback on five separate transport options, three of which would involve extending the Elizabeth Line.  
 
Cllr Teresa O’Neill OBE, Leader of the London Borough of Bexley and Chairman of the C2E Partnership commented:

“This is a really important opportunity for residents and businesses to give their views on how important improved public transport links are to them. While there is a lot of uncertainty at the moment on the future of public transport, as we look ahead to life beyond the current pandemic we know that better links will be fundamental to our plans to bring forward new high quality homes and jobs which can be accessed in safe, sustainable ways”.
 
“By giving their views, residents and businesses can influence which options are taken forward for further development. So I encourage everyone to have their say by visiting the consultation link before it closes on 3rd March.”

Notes to editors: The C2E Partnership was formed in 2016 as an informal group of authorities to promote an extension of the Elizabeth Line beyond its current planned terminus at Abbey Wood towards Ebbsfleet. It is comprised of stakeholders that represent local communities in the area including:

  • London Borough of Bexley
  • Dartford Borough Council
  • Gravesham Borough Council
  • Ebbsfleet Development Corporation
  • Kent County Council
  • Thames Gateway Kent Partnership

In 2019, Government allocated funding for a major study to assess and develop a range of different transport options (including both Elizabeth Line extensions and lower cost options) in order to support new housing and employment growth along the corridor. The C2E Partnership is responsible for the delivery of this study.  See C2E - Crossrail to Ebbsfleet for more background information.
