Work on the modernisation of the port on the island of Maio is now well underway. Located just outside the main town of Vila do Maio (also known as Porto Inglês), the work started in 2019.
The new facilities will include a roll-on roll-off ramp, refurbishment of buildings and pier and a new road to the port. The construction company has recently published a collection of excellent photographs, which include pictures at the port and also at the site of rock excavations for the construction.
This port has recently become a maritime hub. The modernisation of Maio port facilities is much needed, as traffic to and from the port increases. The port is being kept operational during these construction works.
