In July 2018 we reported that a new port was to be constructed in Vila do Maio (Porto Inglês) on Maio. In May of this year we learned that the construction contract had been let. The contract for the port included a new access road. We can now report that the construction work has started on that access road.
It is hoped that the new Maio port will improve facilities for people and cargo arriving and leaving by ferry. That, together with the re-organisation of the ferry services in Cape Verde will hopefully result in a more reliable and more comfortable service.
