News & Events

New Additions to Langtons

27 June 2018

For those of you who visit Langtons Park you will know that over the past few months two swans have made a home on the banks of the pond and been nurturing a number of eggs. Last week mum produced five beautiful signets who are now happily swimming round the pond with mum and dad. Although there have been a few arguments with the other pond residents they seem very contented.
It’s really great to see such a healthy and natural beauty in our area, and a special addition to the Langtons weddings taking place at this time of year.. Don’t forget there is now a café in the park together with toilets facilities.
P.S. unfortunately on visiting the park this week, (Sunday 18th ) there are now only three signets. Two have died. Colin Denchfield.

Latest on the Lower Thames Crossing.

20 March 2018

We have previously reported on the planned new “Lower Thames Crossing” proposal designed to relieve the current congestion on the M25 crossing at Dartford. Following a series of public meetings and consultations the decision has been made to develop a plan based on Location C route 2.
This is a recent update we have received from Highways England.
The new crossing will start on the Kent side just east of Gravesend at Thong with a new interchange at the A2. The crossing will continue north from there to a new bored tunnel under the Thames and reaching the Essex side east of Tilbury (between Tilbury Fort and Coalhouse Fort). Each tunnel (one north one south) will be three lanes and approximately 3Km long.
The new road will continue to the A13 where a new major interchange is planned connecting the new Thames Crossing to the A13. The road will continue on to intersect at the Ockendons between North and South Ockendon somewhere south of Fen Lane. The proposal shows the new road then crossing the M25 around the same point as the Upminster to Lakeside train line. The new road will then sweep round to join the M25 somewhere before the A127 junction.
For those of you who use “The Chase” and perhaps the Cranham Golf course it may mean losing both of these to the ever demanding needs of the car and truck.
Highways England have produced a Virtual Journey Through the new Lower Thames Crossing route which is planned to be complete in 2027, and can be viewed on their website at.  www.highwaysengland@service.govdelivery.com
A further consultation programme is planned once the detailed plans are available.
