The Port of Felixstowe will be able to welcome even more container ships in the future after plans to extend its two newest berths were given the go ahead by the Marine Management Organisation.

It will take the total space available to container vessels at the port to 3,250 metres. Work on the extension will begin soon and is due to be completed next year.
