PORT NEWS: Southampton can expand

Associated British Ports (ABP) has received consent from the Marine Management Organisation for the construction of a new quay wall at Berths 201 and 202 in the Port of Southampton. On completion, the redeveloped quay will be 500m in length with a 16m draft and capable of handling the largest container vessels.

The main works, which will involve an investment of approximately £80 million, will commence in September 2012, with completion anticipated by the end of 2013. The consent was received as Network Rail completed upgrades to the port’s rail capacity.
