Over 3m cubic metres of dredging has now been completed for the new port that will bring the world’s largest container ships to within 25 miles of central London. Work continues 24 hours a day seven days a week at the site in Thurrock, Essex. Visitors can now walk 200 m out onto new land that has been created from the beneficial reuse of the dredged material.
DP World’s CEO Mohammed Sharaf said: “The works are progressing very well and we are meeting with our global customers and potential park tenants to discuss London Gateway.”
He continued, “London Gateway will be one of the most advanced container terminals in the world connected to one of Europe’s largest logistics parks and together, with the location to the hinterland markets, we believe our customers will benefit from significant efficiency savings within their supply chains.”
