Motorboat & Yachting: The three-year redevelopment of St Helier Harbour is now complete, after Marina Projects carried out £3m worth of upgrades.

 

Boatowners visiting Jersey will find upgraded facilities at St Helier Harbour, following the completion of a £3m upgrade programme. Marina Projects has announced that the three-year upgrade was recently completed, including extensive dredging, which has increased the minimum depth to 9.6 metres at low tide and 12 metres at high tide.

What’s more, the old span-link bridge within St Helier Marina has been replaced with a new 52 metre long pedestrian bridge. Additional 24 metre long steel piles have been installed by sub-contractor Fugro Seacore, with rock-socketing to hold them in place. And further improvements have been made to both the visitor berths and the holding pontoons.

Feasibility studies on St Helier Marina were carried out in 2012, but the work only began in September 2014 after planning permission was granted. The completion of the project also frees up space in the South West corner of St Helier Harbour for future construction works.

St Helier is one of the busiest ports in the UK with more than 20,000 visitors per year, including extensive use by the RNLI. It also hosts the annual Jersey Boat Show, which takes place over the first weekend in May.
