In late-April 2018, STENA LINE announced that its ferry terminal in Fishguard could be closed for up to 3 months due to construction works - replacement of the mechanized bridge (connecting the ferries with the dock). The project was budgeted GBP 5 million, with construction works starting in February 2019. By this project, the cruiseferry company replaced the Linkspan (ship-to-shore) connection allowing vehicles to board or disembark the ship at different tide heights. Construction companies started tendering for construction contracts.
