We are pleased to share a roundup of our meetings, events and activities over the last month.
The Lower Thames Crossing team have been out and about throughout May meeting with local community members, businesses, elected representatives and local authorities.
During the course of the month our team were able to attend a number of events across London, Essex, Kent and Thurrock; we attended a LTC parliamentary Forum engaging with MP’s offices around jobs, skills and traffic. Our team was part of the panel at the PLA Port Infrastructure Group Meeting, we presented at the Leigh UTC Business Breakfast to an audience of around 30 business people. And we also shared speaking platform with SELEP at Kent Vision Live.
