Leading wet civil engineering firm, Land & Water, has secured a major multi-million-pound infrastructure contract with PD Ports to upgrade Teesport Ro-Ro Number Two.

The contract announcement comes after Land & Water recently opened its new regional hub in Newcastle upon Tyne as part of a period of growth which sees its offering extending north.

The project, which is due to commence in February 2022, will see Land & Water use its specialist plant and marine expertise to demolish and re-build the Ro-Ro Linkspan bridge at Tees Dock. These works will join the firm’s expansive repertoire in the North which includes a framework contract with the Environment Agency and more.

Land & Water’s Contracts Manager and local lad, Andy McBride, says: “Working with PD Ports to redevelop the Ro-Ro and allow larger vessels to berth at Tees Dock is incredibly significant for Land & Water.

“We are proud to be involved in the construction of this new Ro-Ro by using our marine civil engineering capabilities to strengthen the position of Teesport as the UK’s Northern Gateway for international trade.

“We are very much looking forward to commencing these works and consolidating our place within the northern infrastructure sector in what is an extremely exciting time for the region as it continues to show it is a truly outward-looking, international region ready to welcome the cutting-edge sectors of the future.”
