More investment in London's rail infrastructure

DP World is investing GPB 12 million (EUR 13.6 million) investment in two new rail mounted gantry (RMG) cranes at London Gateway. The cranes will be used for the quick, safe and automated handling of containers. They are expected to increase rail capacity at London Gateway by 50% and will be operational in time for the new berth’s opening.


DP World has now started construction at London Gateway’s new GBP 350 million (EUR 397 million) fourth berth, which will lift capacity by a third when it opens in 2024. The project is supporting 1,000 jobs and the port-centric logistics park will employ a further 12,000 people when it is completed in four years’ time.


The company has also earmarked a further GBP 1 billion (EUR 1.14 billion) of investment in UK over the next ten years. (ben)
