#PortHearing - Detailed plans for a proposed €126 million redevelopment of Galway Harbour, The Irish Times reports, would allow cruise liners to be accommodated which were outlined during the first day of an oral hearing in the city.
Experts representing the Galway Harbour Company outlined the perceived need for the 85.4 hectare project, which is expected to take eight years to complete, to the An Bord Pleanála hearing.
The proposed four-phase plan involves the construction of new deep-water berths to the south of the existing port, a marina and nautical centre. Construction of the first phase has been estimated to cost €52 million.
