Fereday Pollard with support from LDA Design are providing a wide range of specialist Architecture and Design services to the LTC CASCADE Technical Partner for the Lower Thames Crossing
The multi-billion pound Lower Thames Crossing will be the UK's longest road tunnel and world's third largest bored tunnel. It is set to be the most ambitious road project in the UK since the M25 opened 30 years ago.
The Lower Thames Crossing is a major new road in the South East of England that will nearly double road capacity across the river Thames and almost halve northbound journey times at the congested Dartford Crossing.
Highlighting the national significance of the scheme, the UK government’s Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said, “We are making the biggest investment in improving our roads since the 1970s, ensuring journeys are quicker and safer. The Lower Thames Crossing will help transform journeys, create new business opportunities in Kent and Essex and unlock productivity across the UK. It will also cut congestion at the Dartford Crossing and improve connectivity from our industrial heartland to our ports in the South East.
