The Anonymous Widower

The First Cranes Have Arrived

There are reports this morning about the new cranes arriving for the new container port at London Gateway.  The arrival is reported here in the Daily Telegraph.

I will be following the development of this port with interest, as I suspect that getting it into operation will not be all plain sailing. My biggest worries concern the road and rail links to get freight containers to and from the port. After all the freight train route through London on the North London and Gospel Oak to Barking lines are not the easiest places to move heavy freight trains, especially as the local residents don’t like Class 66 locomotives at all hours of the night.
