January 25 - Associated British Ports' (ABP) Port of Grimsby has taken delivery of a linkspan bridge that will form part of the GBP26 million (USD41.1 million) Grimsby River Terminal.

Netherlands-based heavy lift specialist Mammoet delivered the linkspan on the crane barge Mammoet Amsterdam (pictured).

The bridge will form part of a new ro-ro terminal in the Humber Estuary and according to John Fitzgerald, ABP port director Grimsby & Immingham, "the new terminal is on course to secure Grimsby's position as the UK's leading car import facility."

UK based Graham Construction is the main contractor for the project and it expects the first vessels to berth at the new terminal in the first half of this year.
