A new CGI video shows for the first time the facilities that Forth Ports says will be ready in 2020
Forth Ports received development consent from the Secretary of State for Transport in February to build Tilbury2 on a 930-acre site in Thurrock, on the outskirts of Greater London. Main contractor Graham is underway with the construction which include a new rail and road connection, deep water jetty and pontoon. It will be the UK’s largest unaccompanied ferry port and the country’s biggest construction processing hub. The video also shows how the team are focussing on protecting the natural habitat for water voles and invertebrates, as required under the planning consent.
Peter Ward, Commercial Director at the Port of Tilbury said: “Construction of Tilbury2 is well underway and by issuing this CGI video we can see how accessible the new port is to London and how the port will operate when it opens next year. We are excited about this development which has been driven by demand for our customers and we are grateful to the local community for their support during this construction phase.”
