Yesterday saw delegations from the Isle of Man Government, Peel Waters, Liverpool City Council and the Steam Packet Company gather to mark the official opening of the amazing new ferry terminal.

Minister for Infrastructure, Tim Crookall, Executive Director for Peel Waters, James Whittaker and the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Richard Kemp were among the group that toured the new terminal that now has the capacity to accommodate 1,000 passengers and has over a kilometre of vehicle lanes. Inside you can find state of art baggage systems, a café and incredible views across the Mersey.

This new terminal marks a clear commitment from the Isle of Man Government to maintain a strategic passenger route to Liverpool. The Liverpool-Douglas route has historically, and continues to be, the Isle of Man’s main passenger route to the UK mainland.

Minister for Infrastructure, Tim Crookall said: "Today’s tour was about acknowledging the role played by both Liverpool City Council and Peel Waters in helping us in many different ways to deliver the new ferry terminal and cement links with the city for generations to come.

"Tangible examples of this support will be seen by passengers each time they use the new facility: through the council’s investment in Triskelion Way, the road leading to the terminal, and a pedestrian footbridge funded by Peel Waters, which helps to connect the riverside route for walkers, runners and cyclists."

Chris Capes, Development Director for Liverpool Waters, commented: “We are delighted to see the new Isle of Man ferry terminal open at Liverpool Waters.

“Not only does the new terminal look fantastic, but it is also well connected with new road and pedestrian links, and it will greatly improve the passenger experience. We are also pleased to see key heritage features retained and restored within the surrounding public realm.

“This marks another significant milestone in the regeneration of Liverpool’s northern docklands and will create new opportunities for tourism, jobs and further investment.”
