The construction of the Channel Tunnel highlighted the need to diversity the activities of the Port of Dover. The paper discusses the development and construction of a new cruise terminal quay which will be 300 metres long. There will be 9.5 metres depth of water at chart datum, implying that at low water springs there will be almost 10 metres depth of water at the berth. Covered car parking and coach bays will be provided and it will be possible to lay-out up to 4,500 bags for passenger disembarkation. All services, including the provision of fresh water at up to 200 tons per hour, will be available alongside the berth.
