The Irish Independent reports that a proposed new port for the East Coast has taken another step closer to fruition with the launch of a tender for the team to plan the project.

As previously reported on, Drogheda Port Company is the driving force behind the Bremore Port proposals at a site in Co Meath just north of Balbriggan in Co Dublin.

The new port is set to be one of the largest national infrastructure projects in recent years, and is being touted as driving “green innovation to support Ireland’s climate action targets”.

Open until noon next Friday 10 September, the tender “seeks to establish a single party framework agreement to provide civil and structural engineering consultancy services for the development of a new port on the north of Bremore Head”.
