The concrete pour of the first slab of the Tilbury 2 roll on/roll off took place this week. 

When operational in Spring 2020, Tilbury2 will be the UK’s largest unaccompanied freight ferry port and the country’s biggest construction processing hub.

Contractors Graham Civils and Gill Civil Engineering were on hand for the first pour of concrete - a significant landmark in the project. 

Tilbury2 will act as a satellite of the main port and will comprise of a roll on/roll off ferry terminal for importing and exporting containers and trailers, a facility for importing, processing, manufacturing and distributing construction materials, a storage area for a variety of goods, including exported and imported cars and new national strategic rail and road connection into the site.
