South Essex Port Backed
The government has given the final go-ahead to plans for a London Gateway port in south Essex, the first such facility on this scale in the UK for more than 25 years. The DfT issued a harbour empowerment order giving statutory powers to the Pounds 1.5 billion deep-sea port near Stanford-le-Hope. Construction is due to begin later in the year.
