Valencia, Spain (PortSEurope) November 17, 2017 – Valencia port authority (Autoridad Portuaria de Valencia) has called a tender for the execution of a feasibility study for the construction of a platform for the handling of ferry ships at Gandía port.
This facility will serve to facilitate the access of ferry ships. The first season of the connection between the Gandía and the Balearic Islands was handled in an area suitable for boarding but which is very far from the urban area. Sources of the port authority recalled that this was a “provisional” site established to analyse the results of this new service.
Once verified that the port is absorbing thousands of people moving between the peninsula and the islands (it is estimated that some 35,000 passengers used the service in its first year). In fact, the port authority itself considers that Gandía can be a good station to connect the Valencian coast, not only with Ibiza but also with the rest of the Balearic Islands, as was evident in the presentation of the economic impact study of the port that took place earlier this week.
