As outlined in those posts there is also info on the official HE website and on our website.
Please DO NOT copy and paste any content on our website (or anywhere else for that matter!) into your consultation response. In 2016 HE lumped together 13,000 responses as 1 response as they considered them to be an organised group response as they used a template with a free comments box. We do NOT want a repeat of that this time around, and they have warned us they will do the same again if they consider responses to be organised responses.
Question 9 – Traffic
- HE have modelled forecast changes in traffic flows and the impacts on congestion as a result of the Lower Thames Crossing. Further details of their analysis are set out in Section 8 of Your guide to consultation, and also Traffic Forecasting Report and Traffic Forecasts Non-Technical Summary.
Q9a. Do you agree or disagree with the view that the Lower Thames Crossing would improve traffic conditions on the surrounding road network?
- Here you have a choice to select from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree
Please bear in mind that this question is asking specifically about the proposed Lower Thames Crossing outlined in the consultation, not a new crossing in general. There is a big difference!
Do you feel that there will be adequate improvements at the Dartford Crossing if LTC opens?
Will the Dartford Crossing still be over capacity if LTC opens?
Can the M25 cope with more traffic?
What impact will it have on local roads?
Have you considered what happens on local roads if there are incidents on M25, LTC or both at the same time?
Q9b. Please let them know the reasons for your response to Q9a and any other views you have on the Lower Thames Crossing’s impact on traffic.
Again, please bear in mind that this question is asking specifically about the proposed Lower Thames Crossing outlined in the consultation, not a new crossing in general. There is a big difference!
