STENA & P&O TO SHARE CAIRNRYAN TERMINAL

THE Office of Fair Trading have cleared the way for Stena Line and P&O to operate jointly out of Cairnryan.

They have given the go-ahead for Stena to take a 50 per cent stake in the P&O terminal, allowing them to move from Stranraer.

Originally Stena were build a multi-million pound terminal at Old House Point, north of Cairnryan, which would have allowed them to increase the number of sailings by their high speed catamaran between Lochryan and Belfast.

But they abandoned that plan after P&O invited them to share facilities at Cairnryan.

One plan has already been put forward to the people living in the village which shows a Stena terminal being built at the north end of the post, leading to a purpose-built berth for the Stena Voyager.

Under the initial proposals, Stena would also take over the existing double-deck loading ramp with P&O building a new one on a berth to run parallel with the existing high speed ferry berth.
