Tilbury2 makes progress

The Port of Tilbury, part of Forth Ports Ltd, has submitted an application to the Planning Inspectorate for a development consent order to build a new terminal adjacent to the current port in Thurrock.

As previously reported, the proposed new port, known as Tilbury2, would be built on a 152-acre site that was part of the former Tilbury Power Station.

Tilbury2 is central to the Port of Tilbury’s £1B investment programme, 2012-20. This investment also includes the UK’s largest warehouse at the port’s second extension site – the 70-acre London Distribution Park – for Amazon UK, which began operating this autumn.

Tilbury has doubled the size of its business in the past 10 years, and is projected to double the volume across the quay to 32 Mt over the next 10 to 15 years. Expansion is needed to cope with rising demand for construction materials and aggregates from the UK’s building sector, imported and exported cars, as well as an increase in ro-ro trades. The site will be road and rail connected. It is envisaged that Tilbury2 will be operational in Q2 2020, and will act as a satellite of the main port.
