Why is the Lower Thames Crossing important?
By almost doubling road capacity across the Thames east of London and easing congestion on the Dartford Crossing every year, the new road would improve journeys for millions of people every year.
It would also play a vital role in our nation’s economic recovery, connecting residents to jobs, and businesses to customers.

Each year tens of thousands of businesses rely on our roads to connect with customers and suppliers, and move essential goods and products to every corner of the UK.
Below you'll see a number of videos which share stories from a range of businesses and you'll hear how quicker and more reliable journeys offered by the Lower Thames Crossing would help them grow.
