If the Trinity Inlet dredging plan goes according to plan, the mega cruise ships will be able to dock at the Port of Cairns by the end of 2015.
â€śThe environmental assessment process was expected to take two years and the dredging about eight months,â€ť stated Ports North chairman Brett Moller.
The Ports North announced that this project should inject an estimated $436 million into the regionâ€™s economy, cairns.com reports.
“If we are on target, then towards the end of 2015 the first of the mega ships should be docking at the Port of Cairns,” Moller concluded.
