The £250 million DWDR development is the single biggest investment ever undertaken by the Port and represents the next exciting evolution of the Port, delivering long-term capacity for a key international gateway handling trade to the value of £122bn representing up to 17% of UK trade in goods.

The revival of the western part of the Port estate supports the developing destination agenda for Dover, being identified as the key catalyst for the wider regeneration of area. It will deliver valuable employment opportunities both during construction and on completion of the new cargo facility.

With a contract value of £115m, VSBW are currently delivering the marine structures and bridge contract. This construction stage includes the design and build of two new berths including quay walls and land reclamation, a new marina pier, the marina curve, navigation channel and new lock gates, Bascule Bridge and capital dredging work.



The agenda of the site visit will be confirmed to attendees at a later date but will likely include:

  • Welcome and introduction from the Port of Dover
  • Overview of civil engineering and land reclamation works 
  • Site visit

Please note Safety site induction and PPE kit-out (safety shoes are not provided but are necessary for admission)*
