We are pleased to share a roundup of our meetings, events and activities over the last month.

The Lower Thames Crossing team was busy throughout April with several positive meetings with local community members, businesses, elected representatives and local authorities.

During April we enjoyed meeting with local schools and community groups, including attending The Harris Academies Careers Fair with over 700 students and parents to raise awareness of Highways England’s apprenticeship scheme. A first-time meeting with The Princes Trust discussing core programmes in Kent and Essex.

Our engagement with local authorities and councils continued with; technical workshops with local authorities in Kent and Essex. Separate skills, legacy and benefits meetings with Essex County Council, Kent County Council, and Gravesham Borough Council and a traffic modelling meeting with the London Borough of Havering.

Our technical engagement this month included productive meetings with National Grid, Environment Agency, Southern Water, Metropolitan Police, Port of London Authority, SGN, and DP World London Gateway.

We enjoyed meeting with many business owners and leaders from across the south-east. This month we attended the Thurrock Business Board meeting, and the presented at the Thames Estuary Development Conference.
