THE Balearic Port Authority has opened its new Maritime Station number 3 in the port of Palma.
This is situated in the Paraires quay, and has undergone some extension and remodelling work, which was started at the end of last year and is now finished.

This means that disembarking passengers can now go directly to the baggage collection hall without having to cross the passage in the Maritime Station for embarking passengers.

A pre-embarcation hall has also been built, 600 square metres in area, for passengers who have been through the police controls but have not yet boarded their ship. This complies with the security code which recently came into force for ports.

The work was done by a syndicate of companies, with a budget of 2'373'000 euros. Its opening concides, as was planned, with the start of Summer and the increase in the number of passengers passing through this terminal of the port.

The Port Authority has now finalised the global improvements to Maritime Stations 2 and 3, situated in the Paraires quay, which had a budget of approximately 4'730'000 euros and consisted of the remodelling and extension of both of these passenger terminals.

In both cases the boarding and disembarcation operations have been separated, belts for the transport of luggage have been installed, access points, such as escalators, lifts and services have been adapted for disabled people, and the air conditioning, fire prevention installations, security and public address systems have all been improved.

This has all been done with the aim of making the stations more modern, comfortable and uniform. Also the facilities for passengers and users have been improved, giving a much more functional and modern image, in accordance with the renovations which the Balearic Port Authority is carrying out in all its installations and buildings.
