Port ter­mi­nal must smarten up

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western View -

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.
