Britain's largest container port to be built

Britain's largest container port is to be built by P&O on a 62ha site at Thurrock in Essex.

Designed to take supercontainer vessels that cannot dock at Tilbury, the 10 berth port will handle 3.5Mt per year of freight. It promises to regenerate the north Thames estuary, creating 10,000 jobs.
