UK – Liverpool – Maritime Mercantile City

A team featuring Stride Treglown has been chosen for a new £50 million cruise liner terminal on Princes Parade in the heart of Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage zone

The team, led by engineer Ramboll, topped an undisclosed international shortlist to win the publicly tendered £5 million contract to draw up detailed plans for a permanent passenger port next to Liverpool’s iconic Three Graces.

The facility will double the capacity of the city’s existing cruise terminal (pictured) which opened on the River Mersey 10 years ago and now handles around 120,000 passengers annually, generating more than £7 million a year for Liverpool’s economy.

Its replacement will be built at the former Princes Jetty, around 300m from the existing cruise terminal, and will host larger ships of up to 3,600 passengers. It is also expected to serve as a base for soon-to-be-reintroduced transatlantic crossings.
