Port of Tilbury London has started the tender race for a new port terminal just to the east of its existing port in Essex

The proposed Tilbury 2 port will be constructed on land that formed the western part of the old Tilbury Power Station and is expected to create over 200 construction jobs.

A formal invitation to tender is now published for £25m marine and £65m landside works.

The site will be developed with a RoRo terminal and specialist construction materials and aggregates terminal, which will also have facilities to produce asphalt and concrete products.

The scheme, which was designed by the Peterborough office of consultant Atkins, will require an infrastructure corridor to accommodate road and rail links to the existing rail and road network.

On the marine side, an existing jetty on the river will be lengthened to accommodate three vessels at any one time and the onward transportation of goods by barge to London.
