New Cruise Ship Terminal to be Completed by September

Construction of new cruise ship terminal facilities in Port Lincoln are set to be completed before the cruise season starts later this year.

Located at Brennan's Wharf and linked to the Parnkalla Trail Wharf Precinct, the $230,000 facility will include a passenger bathroom, additional shelter and seating, a pop up information centre, safety fencing, bus pick up point, signage and storage.

City of Port Lincoln Mayor, Brad Flaherty, said in a statement the plans will further strengthen the city's standing as a tourist destination, and a new terminal will provide safer, more suitable facilities, which will enable a smoother flow of passengers from ships into Port Lincoln.

Local construction firm Plevin Builders has been awarded the contract, with the terminal expected to be completed in time for the arrival of the Coral Princess on September 18.
