Smart Motorways

We are tackling congestion on some of the most important routes in England’s motorways by making them “smart”. Smart motorways use technology to actively manage the flow of traffic and increase road capacity.

  • Lower Thames Crossing

    The Lower Thames Crossing will be a new road crossing connecting Essex and Kent. Located east of Gravesend and Tilbury, this new crossing will offer the improved journeys, new connections and network reliability, and economic benefits that only a new, alternative crossing, away from Dartford, can provide.

  • Route Strategies

    Working closely with local partners and stakeholders, we use route strategies to identify current and future constraints to economic growth that the performance of the strategic road network potentially causes, and identify how future delivery and investment plans might address them.
