 C2E consultation on proposals to improve transport links 

Residents and businesses have been invited to provide their views on exciting plans for improved, fast public transport services connecting Ebbsfleet, Dartford, Slade Green, Erith and Belvedere with Abbey Wood. This consultation has now closed: over 1,000 responses have been received and are being analysed to inform the appraisal of five different transport options as part of a government-funded study.  

Although this consultation has closed, there will be a further consultation in summer 2021 on a smaller number of options selected for detailed assessment.  To keep in touch and to find out more, go to the consultation website:


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.
