Friday’s traffic gridlock across Dartford was another reminder that the delay in naming the location of a new Thames Crossing is damaging our town. Labour in Dartford have always said that any new crossing needs to be built away from Dartford and we’ve campaigned strongly alongside residents to make the case to rule Dartford out now.

Bridge traffic Simon Thomson, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Dartford, has criticised the announcement from the government that a decision on the location of new Lower Thames Crossing is now been further delayed.
The delay in the decision, which is now not expected to be made until 2016, will mean more uncertainty for people in Dartford. Labour in Dartford is clear that further delay is unacceptable and believes the case has already been made to rule Dartford out as a possible location.

Many people in Dartford are still struggling to make ends meet because of the government’s failure to tackle the cost-of-living crisis and make work pay. Yet on Monday our Tory MP Gareth Johnson said he wants to stick with the same old polices that are failing residents. Presumably our MP will have no problem declaring his support for the following:

  • The hiring of private firm ATOS to reassess vulnerable people for disability benefit only to have them languishing in uncertainty and stress thanks to a backlog of 780,000.
  • Child poverty in families with a single parent working full-time rising from 17% in 2011-2012 to 22% in 2012-2013.
  • £131 Million being written off because of the botched introduction of Universal Credit.
  • Introducing a Bedroom Tax that forces people out of homes they’ve lived in for years.
  • Over a Million people forced to rely on foodbanks.
