Cllr David KendallOption C on the Lower Thames Crossing scheme was backed today at Essex County Council's Full Council meeting, though it was opposed by the official opposition Liberal Democrats.

Lib Dem Cllr David Kendall called for the Council to stand shoulder to shoulder with the thousands of residents in Thurrock. He said, "The Option C route will run a bulldozer through green belt land, destroy homes and ancient forests, increase air and noise pollution, and also have a major impact on many established communities.

"The route will also seriously impact on residents' health and their quality of life. The Lib Dems are in support of more jobs and a stronger economy in Essex but not at this price.''

The Lower Thames Crossing action group have welcomed Lib Dem support: https://twitter.com/tcaginfo/status/1049767914109325312
