Race on for £10M Port of Dover highways contract

Port of Dover

The Port of Dover is looking for a contractor to carry out £10M of highways and infrastructure work. 

In a contract notice published yesterday it outlined the work, which will incude construction of marina and boatyard access roads, boatyard resurfacing, and the refurbishment of the historic Clock Tower Square, as part of the Dover Western Docks Revival programme. 

The contract is scheduled to start on 1 January next year and is due for completion at the end of December 2019.

The Kent port will hold a supplier event for its four-year £20M civil engineering framework on Tuesday ahead of publication of the contract notice on 25 May.

VSBW, a joint venture between VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster, won a £115M contract to build two new berths at the port at the beginning of last year.

The work involves the design and construction of two new berths including quay walls and land reclamation as well as a new pier, the marina curve, navigation channel and new lock gates, a bascule bridge and capital dredging work. It is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
