Lower Thames Crossing

15th July 2014
Welcome news this morning from Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin that a decision on an additional crossing of the Thames will be deferred until after the impact of the new free-flow charging scheme (due to start in October) at the existing crossings can be assessed.  The free-flow system will free up capacity at the existing crossings and we’ve been pressing for a long time for this to be properly assessed before pressing ahead with expensive and environmentally-damaging road schemes.
