Peel Ports Group has marked the full reopening of Runcorn Docks on the Manchester Ship Canal, following a £4 million program of works.

Over the last 14 months, Peel Ports has worked with McLaughlin and Harvey to reinstate and upgrade two of its 4 berths one of which was closed in January 2017.

As reported, berths 7 – 9 are now fully open, reducing congestion on the River Mersey and offering greater flexibility to customers.

More than 100 years old, Runcorn Docks is undergoing continual upgrades to ensure state-of-the-art facilities are available for customers, with plans underway to redevelop the storage areas of the port in the next 2 to 5-years.

Lance Weissenborn, Operations Director at Peel Ports Liverpool, said: “The arrival of cargo vessel Mia Sophie B marks a significant milestone at Runcorn Docks as it fully reopens for business following 14-months of construction to stabilize and rebuild the dock wall.

Next month, dredging is scheduled at the docks to allow for the transportation of larger vessels and for cargo to be discharged more efficiently.
