The north’s largest construction group has been appointed by the Port of Tilbury in London to build the new multi-million pound port terminal, Tilbury2.

The port received planning permission last week, with construction work to begin immediately and be complete in Spring 2020.

The contract will involve the creation of a new port terminal and associated facilities on land at the former Tilbury Power Station on the north bank of the River Thames.

Once operational, Tilbury2 will be the UK’s largest unaccompanied freight ferry port, will possess the biggest construction processing hub in the UK, while the development will also be able to accommodate larger freight trains up to a length of 775m.

Graham executive chairman, Michael Graham said they are excited to deliver the “transformational” scheme.
