Swedish Quay receives observation post

On 3 August the Zeebrugge port authority started with the construction of a permanent observation post at the foot of the Swedish quay.

With the observatory the port authority aims at reducing the sometimes inaccessible and invisible character of the port. This initiative should close the gap between the people and the port. After all a port is fascinating and offers often unique and surprising views.

Swedish Quay receives observation postThe observation post will be permanently open to walkers and bicyclists. Also disabled persons can visit the observatory. From the platform on top of the container they can enjoy a unique view. In fact, the tower is located on the hinge point between the outer and inner port. Visitors can admire the cruise vessels calling or a gigantic car carrier that enters the P. Vandammelock. The tower also offers a marvellous view on the ends of the two breakwaters, which lie about 3.5 km into the sea.

Also benches and bike racks will be provided. Inside the container an exhibition will give explanations on the port environment.

The observation post will be permanently open for the public in the beginning of 2011.

The total cost of the tower amounts to 130,000 euros. This is financed by the Zeebrugge port authority and the European Fund for Regional Development.
