£5million increase to Liverpool ferry terminal cost

The cost of building the new Isle of Man ferry terminal in Liverpool will increase by £5million.

That's according to Infrastructure Minister, Tim Baker MHK, who provided the update after being questioned on the matter in the House of Keys today.

Mr Baker says costs and delays have happened following the need to remove unexploded World War Two bombs from the development site and protection for the seawalls from the thrusters on the bow of the new 'Manxman' ferry currently expected to arrive on Island in 2023.

The minister also confirmed five percent will also be added on top of that for other reasons.
