    [02] First stage of the reconstruction of quay one, in port of Saranda completed

    SARANDA, Jan. 3 (ATA) - By Sh. Hajno: The reconstruction of the quay one of the port of Saranda was completed in the last few days.

    According to the director of this port, Vasil Duka, the reconstruction of the quay needed immediate intervention because it was greatly amortized and was a danger for the ships to anchor.

    The reconstruction of the quay started at the end of 1998 with a fund of 5 million lek, by the state budget. In the mean time, the complete reconstruction of the quay in the last quarter of 1999 needed another 5 million lek by the state budget.

    According to sources from the port, with the completion of the reconstruction of this quay, possibilities are created for the quick processing of the ships carrying commodities or passengers ferry boats and enables the only crane installed there to carry out 60 per cent of the volume of work in the port.

    During 1997, the port of Saranda was ruined and its quays exploded. The damage caused in that period according to official data, are as high as 12 million lek. /dast/xh/
