Massive Cranes Unload Ships On Thames

Cranes - shipped from Chinanes

The cranes were an amazing sight to see on the wide open seas. They appeared to be floating on the water and heading for the Thames.  The first scheduled commercial vessel to dock at the new deep-water port was from South Africa – and more are coming.

Thousands of jobs

Not long ago, three new giant ones arrived from China for London Gateway on the Thames Estuary. The site is near Stanford-le-Hope in Essex.  The massive pylons are taller than the London Eye, the arch of Wembley Stadium and two and a half times the height of Nelson’s Column making them the biggest of their kind in the world.

London Gateway is promising thousands of jobs and an unrivalled efficiency in the freight market.   Video courtesy London Gateway.
