|LR Aberdeen Harbour South Mar 22||The growth of the cruise market is supported by the growth in both the number and size of cruise ships. It is however expected that the majority of cruise ships in use by 2015 will be too big to dock in Aberdeen Harbour. Cruise Market Watch reports that in 2014-15 a further 13 ships will be added to the global cruise market fleet, with an average passenger number of over 3,000. Only two would have the capacity for fewer than 2,000 passengers and these are being built by operators that do not currently travel to Scotland. Accessibility (Road/Rail) The Pre-Feasibility Study carried out by HR Wallingford on behalf of the Harbour Board and referred to later in this document worked on the assumption that improved road and rail access would be required to allow any expansion of the harbour to link to the existing road/rail networks. There is a need to minimise adverse impact upon the existing transport infrastructure network, in particular in the City Centre which is already at capacity during peak times. Where infrastructure upgrades might be necessary to facilitate development at any of the options then these should be identified as early as possible. Bob Sanguinetti, Chief Executive of Aberdeen Harbour Board said: “We welcome the agreement between the UK and Scottish Governments regarding green freeports in Scotland, and believe the move will allow a level playing field in port operations across the UK.||Aberdeen South Harbour|
For public transport to become a force in dealing with urban congestion, carbon reduction, improving air quality and to be an attractive alternative to the car, it must be built quickly and operate affordably.
