Embarkation Facility Installation Commences

As of the 17th July 2017, works have begun for the installation on the new embarkation facilities along the East Quay Ballast.  This will allow us to provide leisure boating facilities to the public.

Below is a photo diary of the project.  We will update this regularly until completion.
