Businesses in the South East are urged to speak their minds over the new Lower Thames Crossing

Business leaders in the region are encouraging local companies to add their thoughts to the debate over the route of the new Lower Thames Crossing.

Now that Highways England has opened an eight-week consultation process, the South East LEP is reminding businesses to make sure they express their views on the proposed routes. Highways England proposes a tunnel crossing under the Thames located east of Gravesend and Tilbury, and has identified three route options north of the river and two on the south side.

Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce is actively supporting Route C and you can find out why at www.new-thamescrossing.co.uk

You can then leave your views on the Highways England site via a link.

Alternatively, you can go straight to the consultation website at www.lower-thames-crossing.co.uk - the deadline for responses is Thursday 24 March.
