- Business & Finance
Port of Dover has just released this very interesting time-lapse video which covers the start of the Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) marine civil engineering construction over a six-month period (Jan 2017 – June 2017).
The principal contractor, VSBW – a joint venture between VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster, is to deliver the marine structures and bridge contract for the Port of Dover’s flagship DWDR development.
With a contract value of £115 million, this construction stage will include the design and build 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.
DWDR is the single biggest investment ever undertaken by the Port of Dover with around £250 million committed for its delivery.
