#LiverpoolBerth - Before plans for a new landing berth in Liverpool for the Isle of Man ferries can go ahead, several questions must be answeered says TravelWatch.
The IOM Today writes that the passenger watchdog held a public meeting last Thursday when numerous issues were raised.
Infrastructure Minister Phil Gawne MHK has visited Liverpool to meet the city’s Mayor Joe Anderson to discuss plans to relocate the Steam Packet berth from its historic Pier Head location to make way for a cruise liner terminal. A new site to the north at Waterloo Dock has been earmarked for Manx ferries.
The proposed new landing stage will be almost half a mile away from the current one.
The cost of the move has been estimated at £15m, but Mr Gawne has described that figure as ‘ridiculously optimistic’.
