Southampton terminal plans unveiled

Plans for a new cruise ship terminal in Britain have been unveiled.

The building, at Southampton Docks, will cement the port’s position as the largest turnaround cruise ship operation in northern Europe, owners Associated British Ports (ABP) said.

The cruise industry has expanded rapidly in the last 10 years and the new terminal will allow Southampton to accommodate the largest cruise ships.

Port director of ABP Southampto Doug Morrison said: “Investing in this type of infrastructure helps create jobs and will bring prosperity to the city and surrounding economy.

“We are very proud of our port here in Southampton and the building of a fifth cruise terminal will cement our position at the forefront of the European cruise industry.”

The £30M building will be the fifth cruise terminal in Southampton and it should become operational in 2013.
