Port on Maio, Cape Verde

In July 2018 we reported that plans were prepared for a new port facility for Porto Inglês on Maio island. It is now understood that the contract has been awarded and that the work should be starting imminently. This will improve facilities for passenger travelling by ferry. There are also now normally four ferries a week, which offers more options for travelling to Maio. It was previously stated that the ferry service would continue during construction.
