Note Liverpool still retained a 26% share of the total IoM air passenger market despite BA's 2005 defection to Manchester so they could concentrate on their "core NW business route".

John,

There is to be the `Allerton Arrow` from Liverpool Limes Street direct to LSP.

You`ll find more information on the LSP thread.

Seaforth plays host to new container services Apr 12 2006



THE Port of Liverpool has welcomed the first ships of two new deep sea container services launched by four of the world's largest container shipping operators.

The weekly services by Mediterranean Shipping Company and Maersk Line to Canada and by CMA CGM and China Shipping Container Lines to the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, consolidate Liverpool's position as the major UK port for container trade with North America.

The new North Atlantic links also promise to further enhance Liverpool's container volumes which rose by 10,000 teus in 2005 to a record 626,000 teus and contributed to the growth of more than 1.5m tonnes in the Port's total cargo volume to 33.8m tonnes compared with 32.2m tonnes in 2004.

MSC and Maersk launched their weekly sailing from the Seaforth Container Terminal to Montreal's Termont Terminal with the MSC Brianna.

They were followed by CMA CGM and China Shipping with the CMA CGM Jefferson calling on Liverpool before crossing the Atlantic for New York, Baltimore, Norfolk and Charleston.

That would be a hugely significant development but I've not heard mention of it before. What's your source for it, if you don't mind me asking?

Peel Holdings. The main part is that the largest ships will be on the river side of the dock wall not having to enter locks. Extra large locks directly into Seaforth so that ships can enter and exit irrespective of tides, have been proposed but they are secondary to the river bearthing. If new locks were built, river bearthing and usage of existing Gladstone locks, access is swift in and out of the terminal, taking the largest container ships on the drawing boards.

So it's a new proposal coming directly from Peel and supercedes all previous plans by MDHC?

From MDHC (who are owned by Peel Holdings):

The Mersey Docks and Harbour Company has applied for a Harbour Revision Order to enable the development of an £80 million container terminal on the River Mersey. The scheme is being undertaken in anticipation of the introduction of post Panamax container ships on the North Atlantic and further expansion of Liverpool's total container trade which is now at record levels of more than 600,000 teus a year.

All this should have been done 25 years ago.

As Liverpool was centre of the UK, near the industrial heartland of the UK, an established mercantile port, of course it made sense to spend money on a fishing village out in the sticks away from the industrial heartland to make the UKs No. 1 port. Obvious isn't it? Yeah.

I meant what was the point of building a facility at Liverpool specifically aimed at attracting post-panamax and super post-panamax vessels 25 years ago? These things aren't cheap and do have to pay for themselves afterall.

Still waiting on an answer to that Peel Holdings query btw.

No locks, as its the first river front dock, will have dredged channel. The Chester watermark- thats where i work, its a legal requirement to watermark maps put on the net, or OS would be after my head on a plate! They are a little over the top on that kind of thing. As it happens i have coverage at that scale for Liverpool and Manchester as well as Chester

Locks directly into Seaforth were considered and are still on the agenda but rather back burner. This is not the first riverfront berthing at all. Tranmere oil terminal, which can take quite large tankers, is tidal, and that is way up river opposite the south end docks.
