The APB opens two new slip lanes to the West dock

The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has opened two new slip lanes to the West dock for vehicles heading for the ferries. The aim is to optimise the control of incoming vehicles to this part of the Port of Palma.

With the current replanning, the West dock now has three slip lanes. The existing lane is for incoming taxis, shuttle buses, and employees. The second lane is for access by trucks boarding the ferries. The third lane, which runs behind the Nàuticopesquera Vocational Training Centre, is exclusively for cars and motorcycles.

 

The two new slip lanes are operational from 8.30 a.m. to 11.00 a.m., Monday to Friday. The aim is to clear traffic at the entrance to the West dock during the peak times at the port, when vehicles board regular line ships.

 

The APB has also built a small roundabout after access control to improve traffic. The different routes to follow have also been marked in different colours to guide vehicles according to the location of their ferry.

The APB hands over a donation cheque to ADDIF to mark the Es Port. 360 Experiences event on International Yoga Day

The Balearic Port Authority (APB) and the Rotary eClub Eivissa International yesterday handed over the donation cheque to ADDIF (Adapted Sports Association of Eivissa and Formentera). A cheque for €3,568.17 was handed over at the Ebusus Cultural Society during the Es Port. 360 Experiences event, held on 21 June in es Martell square.

The APB delegate for the ports of Eivissa and La Savina, Ignacio Revilla, said that " it gives the APB great satisfaction to be able to present this cheque to ADDIF, so that they can continue with their admirable daily work to include people with functional diversity". Revilla hoped that the charity event last June, "will be the first of many more charitable initiatives as part of our aim regarding corporate social responsibility, to facilitate this type of activity and to help integrate the port into the city".

 

Among those present at the event were the Mayor of Eivissa, Rafael Triguero; the Councillor for Social Welfare, Carlona Escandell; the President of ADDIF, Myriam Martín; the President of Rotary e-Club Ibiza International, Denise Klischan, as well as representatives of the collaborating associations and sponsors who took part in the event.

 

AIS accessibility certificate

The APB was also recognised for promoting the first national event with AIS (Accessibility Indicator System) accessibility certification from FARS (Accessibility and Social Responsibility Foundation). A large group of young people from ADDIF also took part in the event and enjoyed this unique experience.

 

AIS (Accessibility Indicator System) is the only international accessibility certification. This certification was based on criteria of functional diversity, whether physical, sensory or cognitive, so that anyone, regardless of their condition, could move around the event comfortably and safely.

The APB and UTE Port Maó sign an agreement to draw up the project for the new maritime station at Cós Nou

The Balearic Islands Port Authority (APB) has formally signed an agreement with the TJV Port Maó, winner of the public tender, to draw up the basic and construction project for the new maritime station at Cós Nou, in the Port of Maó. The contract also provides for technical assistance to the Works Management during the execution of the works.

The basic and construction project covers the reorganisation of the surfaces and roads in the area, as required by the access requirements. It aims to integrate the area in an orderly and efficient manner with its surroundings and to facilitate the provision of port services.

 

A provisional maritime station is currently being built on the Cós Nou esplanades. This is in response to the reconversion of the passenger quay at the Port of Maó into a quay intended for port-city integration and for cruise ships. Moving cargo to the Cós Nou was both historic and effective at the same time. The city gained the space previously occupied by freight. In addition, operational safety was increased, since there is more space, especially for dangerous goods, and more berthing length available both at the Cós Nou and at the Cruise Dock. The construction of a definitive maritime station for regular traffic and the transport of goods has therefore become a necessity, culminating in a whole redistribution for the benefit of passengers, cargo, cruise passengers and Mahonese society.

 

This project has a budget of €557,722, excluding VAT. The TJV Port Maó is made up of the companies Grimalt Nadal Morey Engineers and Barceló-Balanzó Architects. The project has a 9-month deadline, while the execution period is 17 months, although there will be a 6-month stoppage due to the tendering of the works. The total timeframe is 32 months, which means that the inauguration of the new Cós Nou maritime station will take place at the end of 2027.
