We all know about the Dartford Crossing and the problems sometimes encountered with road closures or congestion on and around the crossing. There are now plans to construct a Third Lower Thames Crossing between Tilbury and Gravesend to provide an additional alternative route across the Thames, but how much do you really know about it? 

To find out more about this major infrastructure project and it will affect south Essex, why not come and join us at our Business Reception immediately following the closure of the Business Expo. As well as an update from Highways England on what they have planned we will have a question time session with:-

•    Tim Jones, Project Director Lower Thames Crossing, Highways England 

•    Councillor Andrew Schrader, Chairman of Economic Development and Growth, Basildon Borough Council

•    David Burch, Director of Policy, Essex Chambers of Commerce

This is your chance to have your say on this major investment in our local road network. 
There will also be ample opportunities to network with fellow business people as well as enjoying the refreshments on offer.
