From the BBC website:

The £6bn project will link the M25, near North Ockendon, Essex, with the A2 near Shorne, Kent, passing through greenbelt land.

The transport secretary said it would create more than 6,000 jobs and boost the economy by more than £8bn.

Adam Holloway, Gravesham’s Conservative MP, said it was a “crazy idea” and “a disaster for the people of Dartford”.

Under the plans, the new road will cross the A13 at Orsett and connect land east of Tilbury to land east of Gravesend.

The route is basically option C as shown above, but moved slightly east to avoid people’s homes.
