Lower Thames Crossing

Information about the proposed Lower Thames Crossing, including context and background.

A Lower Thames crossing would aim to reduce congestion at the existing Dartford crossing and support growth plans, including new homes and jobs in Essex and Kent.

Following numerous studies and a public consultation in 2013, the government confirmed that a new crossing is needed.

Highways England is assessing options for a new road crossing on the River Thames.
