Port terminal must smarten up
CRUISE ships are visiting Fremantle more frequently; every time a cruise ship is in port thousands of dollars are injected into our local economy.
It would be great if the Fremantle passenger terminal could provide a few essentials to make visitors and local cruise ship passengers more welcome.
The passenger terminal needs an upgrade in line with our modern airport.
There were trolleys to wheel out your luggage; they are no longer at the terminal. A large proportion of cruise passengers are elderly and have difficulty with their luggage.
Please bring back the trolleys, even if there is a small cost to the user.
Public transport is more than walking distance from the terminal and has the high footbridge over the railway line to negotiate.
A bus service should operate from the passenger terminal to the railway station and suburban bus terminus when cruise ships are in port.
There are a lot of flagpoles but not one flag can be seen. It is my opinion the Fremantle Passenger Terminal wants a good makeover.
The Port of Albany welcomes visiting cruise ships with a piper playing the bagpipes and a free bus service whilst the ship is in port.
Congratulations Albany townspeople for making cruise ships welcome. FRANK GRANGER, Applecross.
