The berth will be located on the eastern side of the inner harbour entrance. When complete it will measure 148 metres long by 10 metres wide. It is designed to withstand significant seismic events and ensure ships are safe in our wind and wave conditions.
Through a multi-stage design process, LPC has developed a cost effective design for the new berth which minimises impacts on the environment. There are two components of construction – the wharf itself and landside works to support the wharf and provide land transport services for the cruise passengers. Landside works will begin in early July 2018 and wharf construction in 2018. The whole project is expected to be completed in time for the 2020/21 cruise season.
