Tilbury locks make progress

[ June 3, 2021   //   ]

Work is progressing on a project to install new dual function lock gates on the Thames Estuary in Tilbury. The £34m scheme is a project between the Environment Agency and Forth Ports-owned Tilbury to protect homes and businesses in the local area from flooding. The project will see three pairs of 19m wide lock gates at the entrance lock to the port replaced.
