Do you think a international passenger terminal at the middlehaven site for ferries and cruise ship would be good for the area?

Where would the destination(s) be? Also doubt whether you'd get modern ferries in, and size would be crucial to economic success. Teesside Airport (or whatever it's called this week) seems to struggle to attract either passengers or freight and Middlesbrough / Teesside isn't exactly a major rail hub.

That is former FPSO yard. It will be able take the largest ships. Over the last few years there has been some large ships stored there.

Pretty certain there WAS a ferry from the Tees to Holland in the 70s, but it didn't work out. That was then and this is now etc.

The Tees is/was the deepest of the there main north east rivers.

When the Sir Galahad was brought back from the Falklands to be repaired on the Tyne. It was piggy backed up to the Tees and then towed from the old Smith's Dock yard to the Tyne. The Tyne wasn't deep enough to unload it.

Most of the UK major ports have international ferry/curise terminals.

Port of Tyne and ABP Humber both have international ferry/cruise teminals. Both have plans for further developing there international ferry / cruise terminals.

Surly it would be good for bringing outside spending/ investment and tourism to our region whilst connecting us better to the outside world.

You would expect getting 2 to 3 routes for roll-on / roll-off plus walk-on ferries with a capcaity 1500 to 2000 passengers would be the main aim. But it maybe able get some visiting cruise ships and could become home port for crusie that that tour scandinvia etc.

It could bring lot people to area and would be good for local business in retail, restraurants, hotels etc as well as port related businesses.

There was a link posted on here the other day saying North Yorkshire is the best place to holiday in the UK.

There are only freight routes now between U.K. and Scandanavia obviously the passenger routes that used to run werenít considered commercially viable to continue.

Cruise ships could be catered for with links to York, Durham, North Yorkshire moors, Dales etc quite a few of the docking points for cruises are a distance from the attraction they serve, however I canít think of too many cruise itineraries that warrent the detour to make it a feasible proposition.

Norway was normally fairly busy, North Shields to Stavanger, Haugesund and Bergen. The Noggies loved the weekend booze cruise to the toon for cheap beer.

That is the issue. Just like an airport needs airlines and tour operators to run the routes that operator at the airport an international marine passenger terminal needs the support from outside companies to run the services.
