New ferry terminal to boost airport 澳門新渡輪碼頭 (澳门新渡轮码头)

According to one of the aviation executives, Taipa Island’s new ferry terminal will provide a big boost to traffic through Macau International Airport since the terminal location is very close to the airport.

The government last month awarded a 499.8 million pataca (HK$485.2 million) contract for the terminal’s construction to consortium between China Road & Bridge and local companies Sociedade de Construcoes e Fomento Predial de Macau and Obras de Construcao Wa Kin over 15 rival bids.

The terminal, targeted to open late 2007, will feature 8 ship berths. It will be 4 fewer than the existing Hong Kong ferry terminal on the Macau peninsula. No route plans are set at the moment.
