Havering Council have started an online petition to call for Havering residents to be given a discount on any toll at the proposed Lower Thames Crossing. Highways England previously included this in their proposals but have now changed their mind.

The late Cllr Clarence Barrett campaigned for a similar discount at the Dartford Crossing, as some Havering residents are far closer to the crossing than Thurrock and Dartford residents who already receive a discount.

To sign the petition visit Havering Council’s Lower Thames Crossing Petition website.

To view further details of the proposals for the crossing and to take part in the Highway’s England consultation that runs until 12 August 2020, visit the Highways England website.
