The consultation closed 24 March 2016. Thank you for your views.

We asked you to provide your views and comments on our proposals for a new Lower Thames Crossing connecting Kent and Essex. Our consultation ran from 26 January 2016 to 24 March 2016 and is now closed. More than 47,000 people took part in the consultation, making it the largest ever public consultation for a UK road project.

All responses submitted on or before 24 March are being analysed and will incorporated into our recommendation to government. A final decision will be made by the government, expected later this year.
