Out in the harbour, the marina curve appears to have been completed; beyond it work is now being undertaken to construct a pier.

The view of the reefer cranes is much clearer as the visibility was less murky. The cranes will lift containers from cargo boats. The boats will service the refrigerated cargo building (which is in front of the towers).

Planning permission was granted by Dover District Council under application number DOV/15/01254 for the “reduction of ramps to either end of sheet pile section and construction of cargo berths and marina curve, to be attached to masonry section”. The ramps, which the planning application refers to, formed part of the Prince of Wales Pier.

Further images of the reefer cranes and marina curve (also known as promenade pier) may be viewed on LinkExternal link while the pier beyond it is referred to as a pierhead on the website.
