Port of Tilbury throws lifeline to Gravesend to Tilbury ferry

THE FUTURE of the Gravesend to Tilbury Passenger Ferry has been secured for a further 12 months following the injection of a further £20,000 of support from the Port of Tilbury. This is the third year that the Port of Tilbury has provided financial support for the ferry, which is viewed as an important link between the north and south banks of the River Thames and is the last publicly accessible crossing before the Thames reaches the sea. It is estimated that as many as 90 employees of the Port of Tilbury and its tenants make the crossing each day to work at the Port.
