As part of the Project's assessment process 12 viewpoints have been formally examined by independent experts.
By clicking on each location you will see what Webb Dock looks like now, what is currently permitted, and what the new terminal may look like in the future when operating at full capacity (1 million TEU - a TEU = one standard 20 foot container).
The future views do not show any of the buffer works or landscaping which will help to make the operation less noticeable. These works have not been included as they are being developed with the assistance of local communities.
Photomontages are used to show the existing view and the visibility of the Project, and to depict an indicative container terminal operation.
A 70mm lens on the camera used to take the photos has a picture angle of 26.5 degrees and a horizontal angle of view of around 21.3 degrees.
Four photographs overlapped 1/3 to create an image approximately the same as the central cone of view of human vision, i.e. 50-60 degrees horizontal and 15 degrees vertical.
