The Lower Thames Crossing Design refinement consultation has now ended (at 23:59 on 2nd April 2020). You can find out more on our consultation page.

We've launched a comprehensive programme of Ground Investigations (GI) along the route of the Lower Thames Crossing. Tests will be carried out at over 700 locations, including over 400 boreholes, ground water sampling and monitoring, shallow trial pits and a wide range of unobtrusive geophysical surveys.

We have also started investigations involving Archaeological Trial Trenching, Utility Trial Trenching surveys, and Ground Penetrating Radar surveys (GPR).

Our priority is to carry out this programme of work in a way that will have the smallest possible impact on the nearby community and environment.
