A major investment in the Charlottetown Marine Terminal is going to allow bigger cruise ships to dock in the area.
The funds are coming from the federal government, the province and the Charlottetown Harbour Authority. The total price tag is $14-million
The Governments of Canada and Prince Edward Island are both contributing up to four million dollars through the New Building Canada Fund, while the harbour authority is responsible for all other project costs.
Work includes the expansion of the Charlottetown Marine Terminal South Berth by approximately 270 metres to accommodate two, 330-metre cruise ships simultaneously, while also leaving space for oil tankers and cargo ships.
