Ports of Normandy has commenced road works on the seafront boulevard near the cross-Channel area, as part of the finalization of port facilities related to Brexit. The works are expected to continue for two months and will not affect road traffic, except during the four-day connection phase between the new and old boulevards.
The port redevelopment was necessary to manage the duration of stopovers and ensure smooth traffic flow at the Cherbourg port. The cross-Channel terminal’s general organization has been reviewed since 2019 to accommodate dual destinations from the port to both Ireland and the United Kingdom.
The project involves diverting a section of the seafront boulevard, Felix Amiot Boulevard, to create space for the latest Brexit-related developments, such as secure parking for trucks, and for the Rail Freight Terminal’s redevelopment.
Signs will be installed near the site to guide users towards alternative routes during the connection phase, expected to occur in the second half of May. The project will cost €250,000, funded by Ports of Normandy, and will be executed by EUROVIA.
