Wondering why there's a crane on the Alma Waterfront? The wharf is being upgraded - good news for the fishing community.
Vessel parking in the Alma harbour has been at 150% capacity for many years. This has been a serious safety concern, not to mention the inconvenience to Captains and Crews, and has resulted in damage to various vessels over the years directly due to the overcrowding. In June of 2015 Small Craft Harbours announced that it had finally secured funding for the the Alma Wharf Project. This funding, in excess of 3 million dollars will create an extra 5 - 7 vessel parking spaces at a new extension.
