T2b project – status of the works
13-th December 2018
As part of the preparations for the extension of storage yards the following works have been completed: reinforcement of the ground base, the majority of energy, sanitary, fire and gas networks, as well as rainwater drainage. Works related to the new access road to the terminal are coming to an end – the bituminous layers are being made and the handover of Nowa Kontenerowa will take place in the coming weeks. After the traffic will be entirely moved to Nowa Kontenerowa, which is to take place in mid-January 2019, the demolition of the existing Kontenerowa Street, which is located in the middle of the designed storage yards, will begin. The next phase of the works will be the construction of the pavement structure for future storage yards.
Part of the existing infrastructure on the truck parking lot, including in the vicinity of the gate complex, is reconstructed and arranged to adapt it to the needs of the newly implemented OCR system. These works include the construction of a significant number of foundations for supply of infrastructure such as cameras, barriers, traffic lights, self-service kiosks, etc. Another element of the works will be the assembly of the above-mentioned devices and system configuration.
As part of the T2b Project, the first stage of extension and reconstruction of the existing DCT railway siding has started.
Two additional STS cranes have already started their first launches and tests, while the third new STS crane which arrived in early December is being assembled.
At the beginning of 2019, two STS cranes will be fully operational and the third one will be ready after the first half of the year. As a result, in the middle of next year, DCT Gdansk terminal will have fully operational 14 STS cranes at both quays of 1300 m total length.
