This will affect YOU!
Firstly, a special message for our friends in Dartford
Residents of Dartford will continue to suffer the very same high pollution levels and traffic chaos on their local roads as they do today, even if Option C is built.
All these places could be affected by increased traffic as a result of the proposals. Location specific information will be provided here as it becomes available.
SHORNE | HIGHAM | CHALK | RIVERVIEW | SINGLEWELL | STONE | GREENHITHE | SWANSCOMBE | NORTHFLEET | ISTEAD RISE | MEOPHAM | LONGFIELD | NEW BARN | WROTHAM | EYNESFORD | SOUTH DARRENTH | SOUTHFLEET | BEAN | WAISCOTT | STROOD | HALLING | CUXTON | SNODLAND
The Eastern Southern Link (ESL) will cut a swath of destruction through the village of Shorne, in a cutting below Peartree Lane, destroying valuable ancient woodland.
The Western Southern Link (WSL) roads if built would pass within 150m of the closest properties in Riverview causing increased traffic noise and air pollution.
Both the Eastern Southern Link (ESL) and the Western Southern Link (WSL) roads if built would pass within 150m of the closest properties in Chalk causing increased traffic noise and air pollution.
Singlewell suffers greatly from noise and pollution from the A2 which passes about 100m from the nearest houses. While Highways England claim their proposed Option C would reduce traffic on the A2, we believe the opposite is the case, especially coast bound.
The Eastern Southern Link (ESL) road which would cut a swath of destruction through the village of Shorne, also passes within 700m of the closest properties in Higham causing increased traffic noise.
The proposed Lower Thames Crossing will cause increased traffic on the A228 as a "rat run" to gain access to the proposed new Lower Thames Crossing, particularly in the event of incidents at the existing Dartford Crossing or on the A229, Blue Bell Hill.
