The Planning Inspectorate is currently considering a development consent order (DCO) application from the Port of Tilbury to build a new port terminal, Tilbury2. The application was submitted on 31st October 2017 and final determination of the application by the secrtary of state is expected in February 2019. Tilbury2 is a substantial part of the port's £1bn expansion plans.

If it gets the go-ahead, Tilbury2 will be built on a 152 acre site that was part of the former Tilbury Power Station and will include a new deep water jetty in the river Thames. The proposed terminal will act as a satellite of the main port, with a roll on/roll off ferry terminal for importing and exporting containers and trailers. Tilbury2 is also likely to include a facility for importing and processing bulk construction materials as well as storage of a variety of goods, including cars.

The port is now asking contractors to show interest in an £80m tranche of civil engineering works. The procurement will be split into two contracts, a marine works contract and a terrestrial works contract, on fixed price design and build contracts using the Infrastructure Conditions of Contract (ICC) terms and conditions incorporating Tilbury-specific amendments.

The formal contract notice is expected to be published on 22nd March 2018.
