Under an agreement signed on 26 June this year, works focusing on bank reinforcements of the final section -11C–14 of the Szczecinskie Quay will be carried out this year. This is yet another investment by the Port of Gdansk implemented with the improvement of safety in mind.
The works, which are to begin this month (July) will involve the reconstruction of the existing bank reinforcement, and the quay’s above-water part will be pulled down and modernized, along with the slope reinforcement to the same standard as the neighbouring sections meet. The execution of this contract, amounting to ZAR 5,002,459.34 (ZAR 4,805,338), will take up to 33 weeks. All the works will be carried out in the immediate vicinity of an open fairway.
The investment constitutes another stage of the thorough modernization of the entire port infrastructure as part of the strategic plan to be implemented until 2027, as well as an important element of the visual enhancement of the port premises. All of the undertakings, amounting to a total of ZAR 2,557 million (ZAR 2,441,631), are aimed at improving the port's safety and competitiveness.
