Tarmac and Tilbury tie-up

TARMAC IS forming a partnership with the Port of Tilbury to create the UK’s largest construction materials aggregates terminal at Tilbury2, a 152-acre satellite terminal being constructed on the north bank of the Thames. The work will see the creation of new aggregate processing and manufacturing facilities, including an asphalt and ready-mix concrete plant, supported by the terminal’s deep sea capacity for vessels of up to 100,000 metric tonnes. The terminal will have new rail and road connections and its riverside location will enable the easy import of raw materials and facilitate the use of the Thames as a delivery route for processed construction materials into central London.
