Improvement works for a new rail terminal at the port of Felixstowe will get GBP 4.4 million (Euro 5 million) of EU funding under the 2010 TEN-T annual call. The overall project aims to increase the port’s capacity to handle containers and contribute towards shifting freight from road to rail.
The new terminal will have the capacity to handle around 1.1 million containers per year. It will increase the port's train service capacity and will promote transport interoperability by improving the port capacity to move container traffic from ship to rail. The new facility will also help reduce the traffic of heavy goods vehicles on the A14 and to reduce heavy goods vehicles' miles and harmful emissions in general.
