Attached a photograph of the large crane that placed the original link span in position.

Thanks Beachbum, that's good to know. That crane is enormous. I remember something like it (but probably smaller) assembling a couple of berths in Dover some years ago but it arrived on less than 17 trucks!

The double deck linkspan is being upgraded for larger capacity ships.

The crane being used is the largest in the UK and arrived in parts via 17 Large Trucks, then assembled by two mobile cranes.

This will benefit the marketing of the Port for any future Operators, and follows on from recent dredging activities.

I see that most of the double deck ferry berth link spans have been removed. Does anyone know if the berth is being removed or being renovated?
