High winds have caused travel chaos for motorists across Kent today.
New Dover Ferry Terminal Approved
The Government has given the go ahead to plans for a second ferry terminal at the Port of Dover.
The terminal, which would cost £400million, would be the second biggest in the UK, after Dover's existing Eastern Docks terminal. Managers say it would effectively double capacity at the port, develop it as a national asset and provide regeneration to part of Dover.
Port of Dover chief executive Bob Goldfield said: "This is a great day for the port and its long-term future, for our local community and for the long-term resilience of the UK economy, all of which have been at the forefront of our minds during the development of this scheme.''
He added: "This decision should give confidence that good things are now starting to happen for Dover and that the team at the port is determined to play a big part in ensuring the future growth and prosperity of both port and town together.''
Terminal 2 will be the single biggest development undertaken by Dover Harbour Board.
