Smart Motorways

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 Dartford Crossing is the only road link across the Thames east of London – and it’s at full capacity as one of the busiest routes in the country. We propose a new crossing connecting Kent and Essex.

  • 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.
