The Port of Maó dredging project provisionally suspended by the Prosecution Service

Palma de Mallorca, 26/03/2013

The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has received a copy of the decree from the Balearic Islands’ High Court Prosecutor which immediately suspends the dredging project at the Port of Maó until “specific evidence is taken by the Environmental Prosecution Service”. 


Given this situation, the APB will not at present be starting the dredging work tendered to the company Sacyr.


Restricted access 


Meanwhile, the APB is currently studying the need to limit port access to certain-sized vessels in case a lack of depth could cause difficulties in berthing and unberthing manoeuvres, especially in the area located between Cós Nou and the Passenger Quay.


No decision has yet been made as to whether some scheduled cruise ship and other vessel calls may have to be suspended.
