KENT WILDLIFE TRUST says

”  Highways England have proposed a ‘Lower Thames Crossing’ taking the form of a tunnel east of Gravesend, connecting with Thurrock, Essex. Two link road options have been proposed, with the ‘Eastern Southern Link Road’ the preferred option. Kent Wildlife Trust is opposed to the proposals for a Thames Crossing at this location (‘Option C’). ”

RSPB says

”  Highways England’s recommended route (known as Option C) passes to the east of Gravesend and runs through (or potentially under, in the case of a bored tunnel) the network of mudflats, salt marsh and grazing land that is the Thames Estuary and Marshes SPA/Ramsar, as well as RSPB Shorne Marshes. This whole area provides a rich mosaic of feeding, roosting and breeding habitats for birds. In addition, there are nationally important sites (protected as Site of Special Scientific Interest, or SSSIs) and ancient woodland that may be affected both north and south of the river.  ”
