Lock Gates Project - Complete
In 2015 the new lock gates installation was completed, securing Milford Haven’s future as a top sailing destination.
The new gates were an early phase part of the Milford Waterfront development. This multi-million pound venture comprises approximately 420,000 sq ft of development space with dedicated space for retail, leisure, hotels, restaurants and residential. The new lock gates play an important part in the development by enhancing the marina experience and strengthening the town's marine leisure appeal.
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 was an exciting project which saw the introduction of a completely new set of lock gates - a rare occurrence in British docks. Atkins, the official engineering designers for the 2012 Olympics, designed the new gates.
