Show fears over Option C
7:00am Saturday 14th September 2013 in News
STEPHEN Metcalfe has warned building a Lower Thames Crossing through Orsett would risk destroying the famous Orsett Show.
More than 13,000 people turned out to this year’s show at the weekend, although if the Government decides on Option C, that would join the M2 in Kent with the A13 and M25 in Essex, the 107-year-old show could be under threat.
The East Thurrock MP said: “The idea that this great Thurrock tradition could be under threat is inconceivable.
"The effect Option C would have on the Orsett Show is another reason I am opposing the new crossing.”
