£130m Port of Dover expansion job up for grabs

Aaron Morby 8 years ago

The Dover Harbour Board has started the hunt for three civils firms to take a place on a £120m construction framework to redevelop its western docks with a new cargo terminal and marina.

Main works will cover civil, piling and land reclamation to create new piers and works associated with the construction of a new marina.

The successful contractor will be awarded with the first package of land reclamation with a 22.5m berth, worth £20m.

All of the contractors appointed to the framework will be invited to bid for further packages as set out in the Framework Agreement.

Construction work is due to start in January 2015 and will involve relocation of marina facilities, land reclamation, construction of access routes and paved areas for commercial, retail and port activities.

Expressions of interest must be made by 18 August to John Lyden at the Dover Harbour Board. Tel: 01304 240400 extension 4140.
