The Port of Dover today released the latest update on Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development project.
DWDR is the single biggest investment ever undertaken by the Port of Dover and represents the next exciting evolution of the port, delivering long-term capacity for a key international gateway handling trade to the value of £122bn and representing up to 17% of UK trade in goods.
VSBW, the joint venture between Boskalis Westminster and VolkerStevin, has been appointed as the main contractor for the marine civil engineering stage of the DWDR development.
This first stage of the scheme includes the design and construction of two new berths including quay walls and land reclamation as well as a new marina pier, the marina curve, navigation channel and new lock gates, bascule bridge and capital dredging work.
The major phase of the construction program is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2018.
