Lower Thames Crossing - Working with us

Highways England is keen to attract companies of all sizes that are interested in working on the Lower Thames Crossing project. 

We need to engage with the market at this stage to make sure interested suppliers are well prepared ahead of the procurement phase, when tenderers will be invited to submit a bid to work on the Lower Thames Crossing.

Stay in touch

Over the coming months, questionnaires and procurement information will be sent out via the Bravo portal to those who have registered their interest.

Free training and resources for small and medium businesses in Essex and Kent

One way we are supporting local businesses, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises, is through our partnership with the Supply Chain Sustainability School.

The school can help businesses to grow and develop their skills, putting them in the best position to tender for work on the project, and leaving a legacy of a more capable, dynamic and sustainable supply chain.

Job opportunities created during construction would boost both the local and regional economies by keeping more of the investment from the project in the local area.
