A quick overview
This is image shows the whole route which is helpful to get a quick overall view of where the LTC route is proposed to go. Note that the Tilbury Link road was removed when Highways England released the Lower Thames Crossing maps that were issued on 10th Oct 2018. It is also worth noting how far north the proposed LTC goes, way past J29 on the M25, as many think of it simply as a river crossing and don’t realise the real impact and exactly how extensive the whole route and it’s impact would be.
