Highways Agency Update for 2017

Looking back at 2017

It has been a busy year for Highways England and the Lower Thames Crossing project team, and we are preparing for an even bigger 2018. We have a once in a generation opportunity to significantly improve connections between Essex, Thurrock and Kent and we are committed to working with communities and local authorities to deliver the best possible outcomes for the area.

We want to take you along on this journey and make sure you are kept informed throughout the entire process. Today we are sharing a roundup of the latest Lower Thames Crossing news. If you have a friend or family member who also needs to know about the project, please forward them this email and encourage them to sign up for updates on our website. 

On behalf of the Lower Thames Crossing project team, have a wonderful festive season and best wishes for 2018.
