Shaping the design of the Lower Thames Crossing

We want to build and operate the Lower Thames Crossing in a way that brings the most benefit to the local area and the UK, whilst reducing our impact on our neighbours and the environment

Since 2013 we have actively sought the views of local communities and road users for 375 days, with more than 90,000 of you giving us your views. We have used your feedback, along with the results of ongoing engagement with a huge range of stakeholders, as well the findings of our ongoing surveys and investigations, to shape the design of the project.

Our most comprehensive programme of consultation ever included:

You said, we did

We have used your feedback, along with the results of our engagement with stakeholders and technical surveys, to help us design a crossing that meets the objectives agreed by National Highways and the Department for Transport whilst reducing our impact on local communities and the environment.

You can find out more about how your feedback has shaped the Lower Thames Crossing by exploring the interactive tool below.

Our consultation and other related documents, including a summary of the feedback received during the local refinement consultation held earlier this year, are available to read.

Further information about the feedback we have received and how we responded will be available in the Consultation Report we will shortly be submitting with our Development Consent Order application. This report will be available to read on the Planning Inspectorate website if and when our application is accepted.
