A quay of 216 m was constructed on reinforced concrete and steel pilings. The harbour has been dredged to a depth of 8 m (26´3´´) at datum with 10 m (32´9´´) alongside the quay and leading lights have been set up to permit night-time as well as day-time entry and sailing. As from 2009 this berth is being extended to reach a total frontage of 288 m. The commercial quay referred to above has been constructed in front of the old “National” wharf and the space between them has been filled in to provide an ample area for working cargo.
