Council calls for Lower Thames Crossing re-think

Comment

Any re-think of the Lower Thames Crossing ought to consider the introduction of a railway within the crossing. This would encourage a modal shift from road to rail which is a more sustainable form of transport. A Lower Thames ail crossing could also allow freight trains from Essex and East Anglia to have easy access to the Channel Tunnel. The Fehmanbelt crossing currently being built between Germany and Denmark has both road and rail within the new tunnel and sets a good precedent for the sort of joined-up infrastructure planning that ought to happen more within the UK.
