Marina Projects Limited, the marina consultancy business, has been leading the development of a project that has delivered much needed improvement to visitors’ berths and holding pontoons in the busy St. Helier Harbour, Jersey.
More than 20,000 yachtsman visit St. Helier each year and this development will offer a significant enhancement of facilities for all harbour users.
The Jersey Harbour berths 4 and 5 are used extensively by visiting yachts, resident boats waiting for tidal access into marinas, and as a landing point for cruise ship passengers. Berthing facilities were also required for a number of key stakeholders, including the RNLI. Extensive consultation with the RNLI was undertaken to ensure their operational needs were fully accommodated. In addition to this, an old link-span bridge within St. Helier Marina has now been replaced by a 52m long pedestrian bridge to improve access.
