More space at the Port
Wednesday, January 26, 2005
The Port Authority is now much better prepared to handle the increasing volumes of cargo shipments with almost an extra acre of space. Port Director Paul Hurlston said the new expansion at the dock was handed over by the contractors - Meisner Marine - last week.
The 0.8acre space is already in use, allowing increased storage and mobility, as shipments are offloaded and taken to the Cargo Distribution Centre. Mr. Hurlston also reported that work is progressing well on the adjacent project at the north end of the dock - the new Royal Watler Cruise Terminal
That 2.2 acre site, with a new finger pier for cruise tenders, is now in the final stages of ground preparation.
