Vigo, Spain (PortSEurope) January 9, 2017 – Vigo port has completed the design of the extension of Bouzas ro-ro terminal. The space gained for the parking of vehicles through the demolition of concrete blocks will reach 6,600 sq m. The total surface of the esplanade will be increased by 2% to 350,000 sq m, allowing the parking of 1,000 extra cars. The project will lead
to the reorganisation of access to the harbour. To facilitate the transit of large trucks, the port will create a new entrance. The current one, located next to Free Zone, in turn, will be only for the exit of vehicles. With this approach, the technicians of the port authority follow the guidelines under the Blue Growth strategy, which has the optimisation of Bouzas terminal performance as one of its main objectives. In order to achieve this, the port aims to adapt the accesses to the characteristics of large trucks and trailers (megatrucks), and to the type of cargo they transport. Project cargo is expected to be one of the main drives of growth of Vigo port in the future. Source: Faro de Vigo (Local daily newspaper) Copyright (c) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2017.
