04 Jan Land & Water Creates Thames Liquid Highway
Leading civil and environmental engineering company, Land & Water, has recently invested in a £500,000 dredging campaign to increase the capacity of its Thames-side marine logistics centre at Coldharbour Lane, Rainham, Essex.
Land & Water is celebrating 25th this year and the company is thinking towards the future. One of the most important aspects of the company’s work is safeguarding and improving environments for the next generation to enjoy. An integral part of Land & Water’s master plan is to invest in UK infrastructure to build sustainable end-to-end relationships with key partners.
As part of this plan, Land & Water purchased Coldharbour Lane Jetty, a new facility which has achieved full planning permission to act as a marine logistics centre which will support major infrastructure projects along the Thames Estuary.
The wharf, which has three fully operational shipping berths, will handle waste spoils from construction works and allow them to be shipped to the company’s adjacent habitat creation site at Rainham Marshes. The hub will also act as a transport node for materials and products to be shipped onto barges for onward distribution into London.
