Highways England are consulting on proposals for a Lower Thames Crossing.
They are promoting a preferred "Option C" crossing the Thames by a bored tunnel to the East of Tilbury / Gravesend.
There are a number of route alternatives, all proposals are for Motorway standard roads and there will not be any provision for cyclists or pedestrians on those roads.
Immediate concerns are for substantial growth in motor traffic on minor A roads in the area and rat running through villages.
This may also impact the pedestrian/cycle ferry service from Gravesend to Tilbury.
Official Consultation is biased towards choosing a route, "none of the above" is not an option.
