The Liverpool Echo newspaper reports today that the much-anticipated Liverpool2 container terminal from Peel Ports has fallen behind schedule.
The £300m container terminal was meant to open at the end of 2015. It is now likely to open some time in the first quarter this year. The terminal features 850 m of quayside.
Peel Ports has said Liverpool2 will be the UK’s largest transatlantic deepwater port and container terminal. It hopes to lure Liverpool’s first direct Asian links with the opening of the new river terminal. Liverpool2 will be connected to the national import centre at Port Salford via the Manchester Ship Canal, road and rail.
