Arbus installs acoustic barriers for London Gateway project

Arbus is installing 4,000 metres of acoustic barriers along the A13/A1014 in connection with the DP World London Gateway project.

The Arbus installation crew is currently busy installing anti-noise acoustic fencing on a long stretch of the A13/A1014 at Stanford-le-Hope in Essex. The work is linked to the DP World London Gateway development on the Thames, which comprises the construction of a new large deep-water port that will be able to handle the largest container ships in the world.

The project will markedly expand the capabilities of the Port of London and will help meet rising demand for container handling at UK ports. It also includes one of the largest logistics parks in Europe, which will provide access by road and rail to London and the rest of the country. The acoustic barriers that we are installing are designed to reduce noise pollution and are required to mitigate the effects of the increased traffic noise on nearby homes.

The first phase of the DP World London Gateway development has been successful: the 58,000-tonne MOL Caledon docked in the new port in early November with its cargo of fruit and wine from South Africa.

Talking of expert navigation, we’ve been working on a similarly high-tech engineering project in Crowthorne, near Bracknell, but in this case, the focus of this job is the welfare of mammals rather than homeowners. We’ll post more details soon.
