Dover Western Docks Revival Project Kicks Off

The first stage of construction works on the Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development project starts today, according to the Dover Port.

The port announced that this major stage of the construction program is now officially underway and is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2018.

As the result of these works there will be some changes to the seafront area to establish the construction zone from 7th February 2017, reported the port.

The port added that this will affect both the Esplanade, Union Street, the waterfront and harbor and require the closure of the Esplanade at Cambridge Terrace in order to facilitate the beginning of work on the navigation channel required to connect the Wellington Dock to the new marina.

From Spring 2017 dredgers will be operational within the harbor prior to the start of piling necessary for the construction of the new cargo berths and marina.

Overall, the project includes the design and construction of two new berths including quay walls and land reclamation, a new marina pier, the marina curve, navigation channel and new lock gates, bascule bridge and capital dredging work.

VSBW, a joint venture between VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster, will deliver the marine structures and bridge works.
