Felixstowe – Rail Scheme Sanctioned

by | Oct 20, 2017

A new £60m scheme to improve rail links from the Port of Felixstowe has been given the green light by UK Transport Minister – Chris Grayling.

The multi-million pound scheme will dual part of the Felixstowe-Ipswich branch line to increase its rail freight cargo capacity by nearly 30% and should be completed by the end of 2019.

The loop, just under a mile in length, will allow two freight trains to pass each other. This will enable the number of trains running from Britain’s busiest container terminal to rise from 33 to 45 per day, and is expected to take nearly 22,000 trucks off the A14 road every year.

James Kemball are committed to Felixstowe port operations which has been evidenced recently with the completion of the building works on our Holding Centre – a five acre site providing off quay storage for new and existing customers, which will be open for business soon.

James Kemball have been providing container transport to shipping companies and freight forwarders since 1973, and are now boasting a combined well maintained fleet of over 500 vehicles serving all of the United Kingdom’s deep sea container ports, rail terminals and inland hubs.
