The provisional dock for cruises in Marghera – Venice has been inaugurated by Minister Giovannini
After one hundred days of work and an investment of almost 1.9 million euros, the first temporary landing place for cruise ships and the passenger reception and management terminal were inaugurated last week at the Liguria quay in Marghera.
The President of the Port Authority, Fulvio Lino Di Blasio, the Minister of Sustainable Infrastructures and Mobility, Enrico Giovannini, and the Governor of Veneto, Luca Zaia participated in the ribbon cutting.
The berth will be operational from Saturday 9 April and will welcome 32 large ships during the current year, which will approach the others planned in the other terminals.
The entire intervention allowed the execution of civil works, the installation of systems and functional adaptation works of the moorings and yards in the final part of via Banchina dell’Azoto. The next step in the time schedule now provides for the adaptation of the Banchina Lombardia landing stage – by 30 April – and the conclusion of the nautical accessibility study of the Malamocco-Marghera Canal (scheduled for September 2022).
The approval of the feasibility project for the North Canal is also expected within the year, with the delivery of the first provisional berth by 2023.
