Liverpool Terminal Has Been Approved Despite Increasing Costs

Manx government funding has been approved for a £38m passenger ferry terminal in Liverpool despite costs spiralling by more than a fifth. The project, which received planning permission in April, will cost £6.5m more than originally estimated.

The ferry terminal will be able to accommodate up to 1,000 passengers and 200 vehicles. The facility, which is due to open in March 2021, will be built at Princes Half Tide Dock, about 670m from the existing terminal at the city’s Pier Head.

When complete, the terminal will be leased to the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company.
