The Israel Ports Company said Monday it received a building permit for the expansion of the Port of Haifa's eastern container dock and storage facilities.
Requiring an investment of NIS 160 million, the project will enable the port to increase traffic by 110,000 containers per year.
The dock's current storage space is insufficient, the company said. Initially, some 50 dunams of sea will be dried and the dock then will be extended by 190 meters, while additional storage spaces and infrastructures are constructed.
