The Duke of York has today given the royal seal of approval to the Port of Felixstowe’s new £40 million rail terminal.
Prince Andrew told officials the port had taken on the challenge of delivering goods and services across the UK to the next level as he officially opened the nine-track northern terminal.
The Duke took part in the ceremony alongside Hutchison Ports (UK) Limited CEO Clemence Cheng and the Department for Transport’s maritime director, Ian Woodman.
Dignitaries, MPs, councillors and Felixstowe community leaders all attended the ceremony, which included pyrotechnics, acrobats and historical actors and actresses.
Addressing the crowd, the Duke said: “Coming here today and seeing how Felixstowe is taking the challenge of delivering goods and services for British exporters and importers to the next level is really encouraging.”
