Tarmac has partnered with Port of Tilbury to create the UK’s largest construction materials aggregates terminal at Tilbury2.
The work will see the creation of new aggregate processing and manufacturing facilities, including an asphalt and ready mix concrete plant, at the new port terminal, supported by the terminal’s deep sea capacity for vessels up to 100,000 metric tonnes.
Martin Riley, senior vice president of Tarmac, said: “It demonstrates our firm commitment to the development of industry leading infrastructure to support the delivery of the UK’s long-term built environment ambitions.”
The new, privately funded port is being built on a 662,112 sq ft site and it is envisaged that Tilbury2 will act as a satellite of the main port.
