Alternative docks could become available in the West End as a back-up when Hamilton docks close for a week of urgent repairs between March 11 and 18.

Andrew Dias, the general manager of West End Development Corporation, said that as the landlord for Dockyard, the group was “keen to assist where we can”.

Dockyard emerged this week as a likely alternative for cargo to be unloaded while Hamilton’s docks were off limits to shipping.

Mr Dias said Wedco “should have a final decision no later than Monday”.

Barry Brewer, president and chief executive of Neptune Group Management, said Bermuda Container Line Ltd is also seeking a separate port to unload the Oleander that week.

He added contingency plans will be issued by the company early next week.
