Bright Future for Port of Portland

Deputy Premier and Leader of The Nationals Peter Ryan today visited the Port of Portland to inspect the completed $486,000 Cruise Vessel Terminal Infrastructure Project, made possible by an almost $250,000 investment from the Victorian Coalition Government’s $1 billion Regional Growth Fund.

Mr Ryan said the project delivered infrastructure upgrades to the S.L. Patterson berth located at the Lee Breakwater, increasing accessibility for all vessels and providing adequate docking facilities for cruise ships.

Mr Ryan said the Port of Portland hosted its first cruise ship earlier this year, with the German MS Europa docking in March.

“The infrastructure upgrades have been a winner for the community of Portland, with the port now able to attract cruise ships which bring a range of benefits to the region,” Mr Ryan said.

Mr Ryan said the Coalition Government’s recently announced $220 million Murray Basin Rail Project would also provide significant benefits for the Port of Portland, ensuring a bright future for the port and the region more broadly.
