Expansion of the Weser to recommence

BREMERHAVEN. In early April the planning authority of the Waterways and Shipping Directorate-General (GDWS) reversed the old planning decision for adjusting the fairways of the Outer and Lower Weser, thus clearing the way for the procedure to recommence by virtue of the Measures Act. Dr Claudia Schilling, Bremen’s Senator for Science and Ports, commented on the development as follows: “Adjusting the fairways of the Outer Weser is immensely important, in order to make our ports more easily accessible as well as for the competitiveness of our ports in the future. The Federal Transport Minister confirmed to us in writing that by including the adjustment of the fairway in the Measures Preparation Act, it will be quicker to plan and implement the process.” By including the “adjustment of the fairway of the Outer and Lower Weser (North)” in the Measures Preparation Act, the Weser project is among the most important measures to fund environ-mentally-friendly modes of transport.
