Three of the docks that are designed for cruise ship traffic in the capital will be gone if Oslo City Council get what they want.

The City Council only wants to keep the Revierkaia in Bjørvika, writes Dagbladet.

City Development Councilor Hanna Marcussen (Miljøpartiet De Grønne) and Business Councilor Victoria Marie Evensen (Arbeiderparti) say they want to remove cruise traffic from the docks around Akershus Fortress, Søndre Akershuskai and Vippetangen. A new terminal for the Danish boat will be built at Vippetangen.

It is already known that the City Council has other plans for Filipstadkaia. There, a plan has been presented for 3,300 new homes.

“These are the most valuable areas we have along the fjord, but for most of the year they are closed to people, and appear to be inaccessible. That is what we want to end, which is why the City Council has decided that we will remove the facilities for cruises and open the area for urban life and recreation,” Marcussen tells NTB.
