Contributed by editor on Nov 07, 2014 - 10:36 AM

Following the announcement earlier this year by Euroferries Express to add a coach service linking their proposed Ramsgate to Boulogne ferry service with a Kent to London coach link, Rees Mellish Limited have been commissioned to design and construct a new coach station at the port.


 



 

...proposed new development include enhancing and emphasising primary access to port and town centre by introduction of a new transport link .....

 

The new facility will provide a bright and inviting focal point at the port and offer community benefits whilst providing a first class facility for passengers and the community using the anticipated ferry link from Boulogne or commencing their UK journey from Ramsgate.

 


Euroferries Express has emphasised that the scale of the building must respect the historical scale of surrounding properties whilst responding to the needs of a fully functional and busy coach station facility.

.
The proposed new coach station would include a contemporary passenger concourse with high quality waiting facilities and   enhance transport in the area by facilitating the coach services to a number of nationwide, European and local destinations.


The primary objectives of the proposed new development include enhancing and emphasising primary access to port and town centre by introduction of a new transport link; complementing the regeneration of the Port of Ramsgate;  and encouraging the use of transport links by facilitating a number of nationwide end destinations at affordable fare prices.

 

Euroferries Express is proposing to provide a 99 metre long vessel combining vehicle capacity of up to 150 vehicles enabling it to cater for its planned coaches and those of its coach operating partners, tourist cars, motorcycles at the same time meeting its long time commitment, to carry foot passengers.

 

Detailed plans are being developed to deliver the overall plan.
