Liverpool 2 given the go ahead

The Marine Management Organisation has approved an application for consent from Mersey Docks and Harbour Company Ltd (part of Peel Ports Group) to carry out construction and dredging to create a new deep water terminal of 17 hectares in the outer Mersey Estuary at Seaforth Docks.  This development will provide facilities for 2 post-Panamax container vessels to dock at the same time and will increase container capacity at the port to an estimated 1,500,000 teus. It is expected to become operational in 2015. For more information see the MMO website
