Port of Dover Western Docks Expansion to Create New Jobs
Dover Harbour Board announced that it will pursue a major opportunity acting as a catalyst for the regeneration of Dover. Discussion on the vision commenced at the Port and Community Forum which was independently chaired. Having successfully achieved Government approval in 2012 to develop the Western Docks, the Board plans to seize the opportunity to lock in the many benefits that this could bring just as soon as it possibly can. By reviewing its masterplan over several months, the team at the Port has identified a significant opportunity to support its customers and the community and provide the game changer for which the people of Dover have been waiting for so long.

Suspended Dover-Calais Ferry Route To Restart
A Dover-Calais ferry route which was suspended in November, when SeaFrance collapsed, is due to be re-opened. French shipping group Louis Dreyfus Armateurs (LD) has teamed up with Denmark's DFDS to operate the route, which was originally run by SeaFrance. SeaFrance stopped operating the Dover to Calais route in November. Its rival P&O Ferries, which also which also operates a route between Dover and Calais, complained to the European Commission that this state-backing allowed it to operate unfairly, and cut prices to uncompetitive levels. The joint venture between LD and DFDS will not be receiving a subsidy. The companies had bid to buy SeaFrance but their offer was deemed too low. The joint venture will create 300 new jobs at sea and ashore in France, employing many ex-SeaFrance staff, and will start five services a day in each direction from February 17. news.sky.com/home...

Dover, the U.K.’s biggest gateway for cars and trucks, is seeking state backing for a takeover or share sale that would permit it to raise cash and reverse a loss of freight traffic to the Channel Tunnel undersea rail route, Bloomberg reports.
