Iron ore for British Steel Corporation's blast furnaces at Consett, County Durham, is now being imported through the new ore terminal at Redcar on the south side of the Tees estuary. This development means that Redcar is supplying iron ore for every blast furnace north of the Humber and south of the Scottish border. Under an agreement between British Steel Corporation and British Rail, ore for Consett will be handled by up to 8 trains a day each carrying nearly 700 tons over a 58 mile route. Total movement in a year will be about 1.5 million tons.
