City Council approved the amended town plan for Ferry Terminal Turku
The Turku City Council approved the proposed amendment of town plan for Ferry Terminal Turku in its meeting on 19 June. The objectives of the amended town plan are to enable the building of the joint terminal for ship traffic and the relocating of the passenger rail, and to develop the traffic arrangements and the operations in the port area.
At the same time, more efficient land use in the Port will release new areas for urban development, e.g. around the Turku Castle by the River Aura.
In addition, the City Council approved the range of the cost estimate for the implementation of the public areas in the town plan for Ferry Terminal Turku to be from 29–54 million euros. The estimate does not include the costs of the port area and the new rail connection to the Port.
