In comparison to maritime and shuttle services, cross-Channel rail freight is continuing to underperform.
One of the key investments being made by the project in the UK is helping turn a former riverside industrial site on the Thames at Northfleet into a new development platform for multimodal distribution and manufacturing.
Located alongside one of Kimberly-Clark’s major UK paper mills and having good access to the Thames, Network Rail, HS1 and the A2, the site was at risk of being turned into more riverside housing, depriving the South East of a potential local freight interchange. Action by the former South East England Development Agency (SEEDA) and latterly by the HCA secured the former factory site following closure.
The HCA’s former factory site has now been cleared and chalk fill is being transported to the site by barge from East London and is currently being used to level the site ready for redevelopment. Ahead of this, Intermodality, Kilbride and the HCA have been working with local businesses to investigate the potential of using existing wharf and rail terminal facilities for new freight traffic flows. The new Lidl distribution centre, a proposed Combined Heat & Power (CHP) plant and redevelopment of the HCA site together offer the prospect of further new traffic flows, from an area that might otherwise have been gradually lost to residential redevelopment. Wider discussions with the freight industry have led to spin-off opportunities being created through the Weastflows programme.  Project partners are hoping to assist freight end users and operators develop existing and new cross-Channel rail freight services to Germany, Poland and Turkey – and in due course even as far as China.

The Weastflows project provides a timely opportunity to address a range of issues currently constraining intermodal rail freight.


This work is being led by consultants Intermodality in association with rail terminal developers Kilbride Group and the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA). The next stage will be to bring forward a planning application to secure consent, before marketing the site to interested parties next year. It is anticipated that in addition to the Crossrail spoil trains using the site, further new services will start in the medium term, carrying recycled glass, aggregates, paper, timber and steel to other parts of the UK and mainland Europe. The continued calls from the Rail Freight Group and others for a UK-compatible service for moving piggyback lorry trailers to and from mainland Europe has led the Weastflows project to commence design feasibility work on prototype next-generation trailers, involving a partnership between road and rail vehicle engineers and end users, to avoid the problems which beset previous railway-driven attempts at launching piggyback services in the UK.

Neighbouring landowners Kimberly-Clark and Lafarge have since been included in a larger masterplan area, complementing work now in hand by retailer Lidl to construct a new distribution centre on an adjacent site. The aim is to provide a trailer design from off-the-shelf components, compatible with the fleet of 100 Eurospine and Mega3 piggyback wagons currently available to the UK market, as well as with continental UIC-gauge pocket wagons.
