Norfolk could benefit from economic boost and flood defence as plans unveiled for deep sea container terminal with turbine and road across The Wash to link county with Lincolnshire
Plans have been unveiled for a £2billion deep sea container terminal featuring a new road and flood defences across The Wash.
Centre Port says the renewable energy and flood infrastructure project could help to protect both Norfolk and nearby Lincolnshire from the effects of climate change and future tidal surges.
The company also hopes to create the world’s first renewable energy-driven automated container port - as well as creating enough green energy to power around 600,000 homes in the region.
This project would create a barrier across The Wash with a dual carriageway across the top.
Bosses say that it could create new business opportunities on top of flood and energy benefits.
