The Glasgow City Regional City Deal-funded project will see luxury cruise liners dock on Scotland’s west coast.

Luxury cruise ships are set to sail to Greenock after a £19million investment.

Work is nearing completion on new berthing facilities which will enable some of the world’s largest cruise liners to dock at the port. A 200m floating pontoon is being built which will be able to accommodate super ships up to 340m long.

The £19.2m project, led by Inverclyde Council, is part of the £1bn Glasgow City Region City Deal, funded equally by the Scottish and UK governments.

The pontoon will be made up of four, approximately 1,000 tonne, concrete caissons – each the size of a small ship. The caissons are currently being constructed at the Inchgreen dry dock in Greenock with work on them expected to be finished in February. Upon completion they will be towed out of the dock and secured to piles driven into the seabed . . . .
