HPH stand-down a boon to Northern Gateway project

25 Sep 2007

Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH) has been swayed away from its tough stance blocking the development of the UK's Northern Gateway project by developer PD Ports.

As the only outstanding objection to the application for a Harbour Revision Order, HPH's refusal to back down could have led to a public inquiry being called on the project, causing a significant delay to the project.

However with PD Ports pledge to directly contribute to the provision of upgrades to the East Coast Main Line and diversionary rail routes, HPH has removed its objection to the proposed development of the new deep sea container terminal at Teesport in the North East of England.
