Dover Western Dock Revival

Kent, UK

Tony Gee worked on the £115m Dover Western Docks revival Scheme for VolkerStevin Boskalis Westminster JV to design a new 500m long public access pier and navigation access structure and decking of quay walls.

The navigation access includes a lock and 100m cut, sector gates, future provision for mitre gates and a 15m span lifting bascule bridge. Outline design of the Bascule Bridge and lock gates are included with the design scope.

Phased construction of the navigation access was required to enable service diversions to be undertaken without disruption to private and public users. Interfaces between the new navigation access and the existing highway and grade II listed dock walls have been considered.

The Marina Pier design has been developed with VolkerStevin to ensure a solution is buildable within the shortest timescale taking cognisance of the potential environmental conditions including wave, wind and the 7m tidal range.
