Peel Ports makes rapid progress at Sheerness

[ June 22, 2017   //   ]

Peel Ports Group says it has reached a significant milestone in its Sheerness Master Plan, a 20-year strategy for growth, as construction progresses at the Wellmarsh area of the former Thamesteel site.

Plans for the redevelopment of the 50-acre industrial estate were given unanimous approval by Swale Borough Council last year and demolition of old buildings is now being completed with the levelling of the 32m high former melt shop.

The area will be developed to support new logistics facilities for commodities such as automotive, steel and forest products. This includes the construction of a bridge across Brielle Way which will connect the Wellmarsh site to the Sheerness Port estate, improving access for customers and reducing port traffic on the public roads.
