12/10/2018

FSDF member Port of Tilbury continues call for direct road connection onto Lower Thames Crossing.

As the 10-week statutory consultation for the Lower Thames Crossing (LTC) development consent order begins (10th October 2018), Charles Hammond, Chief Executive of the Forth Ports Group (owner of the Port of Tilbury), said:

As the fastest growing UK port, it is crucial that this project enhances Tilbury’s northbound and southbound connectivity.

“We remain committed to achieving a direct road connection off the proposed LTC Tilbury junction into the expanding port area. 

“To that end, we will continue to play a full and constructive part in the development of the scheme as it is shaped over the coming months.”
