Working with us

Highways England is looking to engage with companies of all sizes who might be interested in working on the Lower Thames Crossing project. We need to engage with the market at this stage of the project to ensure all interested suppliers are well prepared ahead of the procurement phase, when tenderers are invited to submit a bid.


Over the coming months, questionnaires and procurement information will be sent out via the Bravo portal to those who have registered interest in working on the project. We will also host a webinar in the future to allow potential suppliers to hear from the project team and ask questions.

Supply chain school

One way we are supporting local businesses, particularly SMEs, is through our partnership with the Supply Chain School.

The Supply Chain School can help upskill your business, putting you in the best position to tender for work on the project – skills that will assist in other areas as well. This will help your business grow and leaves a legacy of a more capable, dynamic and sustainable supply chain. It also helps us keep more of the investment from the project within the local economy.
