Inland connectivity and the efficient integration of transport modes is a key issue for a significant port development. The London Gateway planning consents require various inland infrastructure works to take place in order to aid modal integration.

This includes works on the A13, Junction 30 of M25, and rail freight links that are to be undertaken when specified threshold levels of port development, and for the associated logistics park, are reached. The Government is therefore liaising with the key stakeholders undertaking the works, such as DP World, Thurrock Council, and others to ensure that the transport works are appropriately coordinated.
