Options for a new River Thames road crossing include a scheme that would pass through "environmentally sensitive areas" and could cost as much £5 billion, the Government has revealed.
A consultation on a second Dartford Crossing begins today with the options of location being:
(1) At the site of the existing A282 Dartford-Thurrock crossing
(2) Connecting the A2 Swanscombe Peninsula with the A1089 in Essex
(3) Linking the M2 with the A13 and the M25 between junctions 29 and 30
