An exhibition will allow residents in the south of the borough to view potential locations for the new Lower Thames Crossing.

Highways England is holding a consultation on its recommended plans – a bored tunnel just east of Gravesend and Tilbury, with a road linking the M2 and M25 in North Ockendon.

Three other possible routes are being explored for the same crossing, which would cost between £4.3bn and £5.9bn and create 5,000 new jobs.

There is also one other suggested location, a bridge or bored tunnel next to the existing Dartford Crossing.

Havering residents are among those to have signed a petition to stop the new crossing venturing into Thurrock.

It has 3,445 signatures, with 10,000 triggering a government response. It can be found here.

The exhibition will be at Upminster Junior School on February 15 from 11am-7pm.
