the britisg govt is expected to give the go ahead for a new port for London.the port at Thurrock will be capable of handling the largest container ships,the sites owner Dubai Port World,is expecting a final decision to be made in 10 weeks,
the likely approval for the port will be a boost to Dubai World Ports who aquried the site after it bought the P+O Co. for about 3.5 billion pounds last March.the port could be in operation by 2010.
what effect this has on the deepwater container termial proposed for Teeside remains to be seen

This must surely be the London Gateway project which is planned for the old Shellhaven refinery site at Stanford-le-Hope. Thurrock is a bit misleading as, from a Port of London viewpoint, it implies the area just upriver from Tilbury.

Yes Dom, I realise that you were only copying what the report said. Sorry if it came accross any other way. As we all know, it's not uncommon for the press to report facts incorrectly or ambiguously and I just wanted to put the record straight.

Cheers

Thurrock.

Hi, Shell Haven and Coryton is the eastern boundry of Thurrock for over the creek inlet is Canvey which I feel sure is in Castle Point. Shell Haven is downriver from Tilbury. The main holdup of the project is the road system. Ken.
