New Lower Thames Crossing

From Bob D.

There are consultation events taking place where you can have your say and question the powers that be on this momentous project. The most central one to us is at The Orsett Hall on october tuesday the 16th 2pm till 6pm.. As this project is likely to ruin our local cycling routes during and after its three year construction time it might be a good idea for as many of us as possible to put our points of view forward regardless of whether anyone will take any notice.

and later ….

Attended this event today. Nice glossy information booklets etc available plus an answer form to record your views and opinions on,also highly qualified consultants on hand to answer or clarify any questions you may have.So far so good,however this project is so large that those of us who are long standing residents of Thurrock will only conclude that this will be the final nail in the coffin to any quality of life in this area.If it was just the road that would be bad enough but the industrialisation of the area that will come with it will be even worse. With Port of Tilbury 2 on the horizon and the ever expanding developments at DP World all bringing more and more traffic our once reasonable borough it is likely to end up as one huge gridlocked car and lorry park, as it was today due to an accident on the A13 .
