Lower Thames Crossing

Winning Support For The Lower Thames Crossing


We work with the External Affairs team, leading on business advocacy and key stakeholder engagement on National Highways’ Lower Thames Crossing (LTC) project, the biggest investment in the country’s road network for a generation.

The LTC will add billions to the UK economy by helping to unlock the huge potential of the Thames Estuary region. The new connection will increase network capacity and open up new markets for local businesses, transforming the economies to the east of London, in Kent and Essex. Like other major projects of this scale, this £8bn project is politically sensitive, and under intense scrutiny. We help to develop creative strategies to overcome opposition.

We’ve been working with National Highways to find and mobilise key advocates for the LTC since Infrastructure Matters was founded in 2015. We’ve been with the project through Options, Statutory Consultation, and to submission of the Development Consent Order application.
