Lower Thames Crossing Design Refinement Consultation

Closed 12 Aug 2020

Opened 14 Jul 2020


About this site

Following our statutory consultation in 2018 and non-statutory supplementary consultation in early 2020, we are proposing a number of design refinements to the Lower Thames Crossing as set out in this site.

This design refinement consultation is the latest stage in the planning process and is an opportunity for you to have your say on the changes we have made since our non-statutory consultation in early 2020.

We want to get all aspects of the design, construction and operation of the Lower Thames Crossing right. Your views play a vital role in helping us to do this and shape this project.

This site provides a project update, outlines our latest design refinements and revised development boundary, explains our environmental assessments and details how you can give us your feedback and how to find out more.
