£10m Investment At Heysham Port Complete With Opening Of New Link-Span

A new link-span bridge at Heysham Port, built to increase throughput at the Lancashire port, has been officially opened as part of a £10m investment by its owner-operator Peel Ports.

The investment is a direct response to the economic potential facilitated by the Bay Gateway link road that connects Heysham directly with the M6. The port is already a key gateway for Irish Sea trade with numerous daily sailings operated by Seatruck, Stena Line and the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company.

A new terminal operating system supplied by Hogia has also been introduced to digitise the management of freight transport through the terminal, helping to improve operational efficiency.
