The Lower Thames Crossing 2018 consultation closed at 23.59 on Thursday 20 December. All the consultation information and documentation remains on this website for your reference, but we are unable to accept any new consultation responses.

We would like to hear your views on the Lower Thames Crossing, a proposed new motorway connecting Kent, Thurrock and Essex through a tunnel beneath the River Thames. This will provide much needed road capacity across the River Thames east of London, and transform journeys through the South East region and beyond.

Have Your Say


More Information

Over the past few years we have spoken with residents, community groups, businesses, local authorities, regulators and other organisations, and those conversations have already played a vital role in developing our plans.

This consultation is the latest stage in our proposal and an important opportunity for you to have your say. This guide outlines the project and explains how to give your feedback.

It describes the detail of the project, how it would be built, how to have your say, and the planning process we will go through before the final decision is made by the Secretary of State for Transport.
