Tilbury2 Gets Approval Next To Port Of Tilbury In Essex

A new port for Essex has been given formal consent by the UK Secretary of State for Transport.

Tilbury2 will be built on brown field land next to the Port of Tilbury, in Thurrock.

Forth Ports Group’s £1bn investment programme would see the volume of cargo handled at the Essex site double from 16m to 32m tonnes.

The company said the new terminal would be “fit for purpose for the UK’s departure from the EU”.
