Mersey Ports Master Plan Consultation Launched

Peel Ports Mersey have launched their draft Mersey Ports Master Plan, outlining their 20-year vision for growth and future developments. The plan seeks to increase capacity of Mersey Ports and the Manchester Ship Canal by 70% and would generate several thousand jobs for the region.

The Master plan takes in the planned expansion of the Seaforth River Terminal at the mouth of the Mersey and adds new ports along the Manchester Ship Canal at Wirral, Bridgewater, Ince, Warrington and Salford.

A series of public consultation events are being staged at locations between Liverpool and Salford throughout June and July and responses will help to shape the final master plan, which will be published in December 2011.

Further details, including a link to download the master plan, and a list of consultation events can be found at the Port of Liverpool website.
