PLA Radar Network

The PLA's radar installation at Cliffe in Kent

The PLA has a network of 15 radars overseeing the River and estuary. Data from these radars is transmitted via microwave links to the PLA's Vessel Traffic Centres at Gravesend and the Thames Barrier and provide a full picture of all shipping movements to and from the River and the outer estuary.
