The port of Bristol is planning to re-cycle its redundant facilities by developing a Deep Sea Container Terminal (DSCT) on the site of an old oil terminal and jetty. (See our Jargon Explained page for explanation of Deep Sea.) There is already a deep channel which will be dredged to make it wider, and container shipping will be able to navigate the channel at all states of the tide. This means that freight from the American continent would be able to come into a port on the west coast of the UK. it will be designed to accept the current large container ships and also the Ultra Large Container Ships which are planned for the future. Bristol Port has submitted a harbour revision order application and environmental statement to the government.
