Winvic has commenced work on a multimillion pound upgrade of iPort Rail terminal near Doncaster, UK.  

The upgraded project will be handed over to logistics real estate company Verdion. 

Completion of the project is expected in autumn (September to November) 2025. 

Verdion executive director John Clements said: “There is significant untapped potential here at iPort to increase rail freight provision and support national and international supply chains.  

“Our agreement with MEDLOG creates a strong platform for future growth and we are pleased to be making good progress with the appointment of Winvic and its start on site.” 

iPort Rail, located within iPort logistics hub, is set to undergo a transformation that will see its size and storage capacity doubled.

A multimodal logistics hub, iPort sits on an 800-acre site offering 6 millionft2 of logistics and industrial space. 

The extension of the terminal will allow for an increased number of trains to be accommodated daily, promoting the long-distance, low carbon transport of goods. 

The decision to expand the terminal follows an agreement with MSC subsidiary MEDLOG in December last year. 

MEDLOG took over operations of the terminal earlier this year. 

The upgrade includes a specially designed reinforced concrete mix with 45kg/m3 of 3D 55-60 steel fibres. 

It is claimed to be capable of supporting the weight of five stacked containers and enduring the frequent movement of reach stackers. 

In addition, the project encompasses the installation of new drainage and services, construction of a welfare unit, a gatehouse, and landscaping.  

Winvic Civils and Infrastructure director Rob Cook said: “We’re delighted that our credentials in constructing Strategic Rail Freight Interchanges and our expertise in pouring robust, reinforced concrete slabs has resulted in Verdion putting their trust in us to complete these works.  

“We look forward to working closely with the team over the next few months as we deliver the scheme safely and swiftly.”

Earlier this week, Winvic secured a contract to design and construct four Net Zero Carbon industrial warehouses at Atlantic Park in Bootle, Liverpool.
