The scheme overlooks the A127 near its junction with the A132, approximately 9 miles from junction 29 of the M25. Central London, about 30 miles to the west, is easily reached via the A127, A12 and A13. This dual carriageway also connects Basildon 117 to Tilbury Docks in about twenty minutes drive and London Gateway in 16 minutes. The A130 is within close proximity providing access to North Essex, making it an ideal location for UK businesses that need to connect with European supply chains.
The deep water container port of London Gateway is a world class facility that will have an annual capacity of 3.5 million containers. Access to the deep water container ports of Felixstowe and Harwich is also easy from this superbly connected location.
The proposed Lower Thames Crossing will benefit occupiers in Basildon. The crossing will boost local, regional and national economies, and form an essential part of the UK’s transport infrastructure, improving connections across the country.
