Milford Dock Lock Project
A set of new lock gates have been officially opened which will secure Milford Haven’s future as a top sailing destination.
The gates, which have been installed at Milford Marina, were constructed inside the existing lock. The improved facility will help boost marine tourism and business in Milford Haven.
The development is part of Visit Wales' Coastal Tourism Project, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government, to encourage tourism along the Welsh coastline.
This is an exciting project since the introduction of a completely new set of lock gates is a rare occurrence in British docks. Atkins, the official engineering designers for the 2012 Olympics, designed the new gates.
The move is part of a major investment undertaken by the Port to make Milford Marina one of the top marine leisure destinations. The development reflects the confidence that the Port of Milford Haven has for the future of Milford Marina and Fish Docks.
