Port Master Plan
The original Master Plan of the Port of Trieste was approved in 1957; 24 variants were subsequently made and new Plan is now approved.
The new Port Master Plan was drawn up to replace/revise the original plan, in order to have an updated, approved planning instrument for developing the port.
The new Plan was approved by the Port Committee on 19 May 2009 after obtaining the necessary agreements from the municipalities concerned, namely Trieste and Muggia.
Once adopted, the Plan was submitted to the Board of Public Works, to obtain the opinion required by Italian Law 84/94 (article 5, subsection 3). The Board of Public Works issued a favourable opinion on 21 May 2010 after making a series of requests to the Port Authority for additional information and clarifications.
The main works planned are summarised as follows:
- Elongation Pier VII
