Work has started on construction of Tilbury2, the £200 million port next door to the existing Tilbury docks.
It will be the UK’s largest unaccompanied ferry port and the country’s biggest construction processing hub. It will comprise:
– A roll on/roll off ferry terminal for importing and exporting containers and trailers to northern Europe, in partnership with P&O Ferries
– A facility for importing, processing, manufacturing and distributing construction materials
– A strategic rail terminal which can accommodate the longest freight trains of 775m
– Storage areas for a variety of goods, including exported and imported cars.
Graham is underway with the construction which include a new rail and road connection, deep water jetty and pontoon.
