Port on hold


The £700 million Shellhaven container port development in Essex has been put on hold following rumours linking client P&O with a possible takeover by UAE firm Dubai Ports World.

A decision on who has the deal is now due in late spring. Costain, Nuttall/Van Oord and Laing O'Rourke are all working up bids.
