VSBW, a joint venture between VolkerStevin and Boskalis Westminster, is responsible for the delivery of the marine structures and bridge contract for the Port of Dover's flagship DWDR stage 1 and 2 (combined).

DWDR is a one-off opportunity for the regeneration of Dover, bringing new investment into the area.  With UK Government planning approval and supported by a mix of private finance and European Union grant funding, DWDR will deliver:

• A transformed waterfront to ultimately attract a host of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants with Dover's unique backdrop of the harbour, cliffs and castle

• Relocation and further development of the cargo business with a new cargo terminal and distribution centre
• Creation of greater space within the Eastern Docks for ferry traffic and
• Much needed quality employment opportunities for local people

DWDR is the single biggest investment ever undertaken by the Port of Dover with c£250m committed for its delivery.

With a contract value of £115m, this construction stage will include the design and build of two new berths including quay walls and land reclamation, a new marina pier, the marina curve, navigation channel and new lock gates, Bascule Bridge and capital dredging work.

Stage 1 and 2 is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2018.
