Investment in Port of Dover will help unlock Britain’s economic potential

The Port of Dover is delighted that its scheme to enhance junctions on the A20 in Dover has today been highlighted as one of the key investment schemes by the Government in unlocking Britain’s economic potential. Tim Waggott, Chief Executive, Port of Dover, said: “Today’s Government announcement is a clear vote of confidence in how the Port of Dover is investing in the future success of the nation and, according to Transport Secretary, Patrick Mcloughlin, how we are helping to unlock Britain’s economic potential. The A20 junction enhancements, commencing in 2015, are just one part of the Port’s commitment to major investment through Dover Western Docks Revival, one of the biggest projects in the South East. “With record levels of roll-on roll-off freight traffic being achieved this year, the Port’s role as the gateway to Europe is vital in ensuring the UK can prosper and grow following several years of economic challenge. We are delivering for Britain by fulfilling our potential and our commitment to providing world class infrastructure.” The announcement is also a positive affirmation of the role the Port is strongly playing in acting as a catalyst for major urban regeneration, supporting new homes and jobs. Cllr Paul Watkins, Leader of Dover District Council, said: “We have been given a real boost of confidence in not only how the Port of Dover is recognised as a world class port with a major investment story to support a national growing and dynamic business, but also how it is enabling the regeneration and growth of a community. Together with the Port, we are putting Dover on the map as the place to be, the place to invest in for the future.” Read More »
