Why A Tram?
Many countries have seen the need for efficient and sustainable methods of transport that is both cost-effective and kind to the environment. Quality of life and good health are seen as highly desirable. As a result, we have seen cities around the world introduce and enforce traffic restrictions in an attempt to reduce levels of road traffic and the resulting harmful & damaging air pollution.
Trams are a cost-effective and sustainable solution to the problem, so it should come as no surprise that around 20 new tram systems around the world are due to open in 2019 alone with many further systems being extended or enhanced.
The area around the congested Dartford Crossing is particularly affected by some of the highest levels of pollution in the UK, resulting in local health and quality of life being compromised.
Removes traffic from the (A282) Dartford Crossing and local roads.
Contributes to improving air quality as a result of transfer from road to tram.
Fast, Clean & Affordable transport for local communities.
New job opportunities between Essex / Kent, without the need to use a car.
Estimated at £600M (10% of the Lower Thames Crossing Project) KenEx is anticipated to remove 10% of local traffic from the road network.
Further information will be posted on this website as the KenEx Tram project matures.
