Gare maritime de la Major
As part of redevelopment of the Joliette basins, the Grand Port Maritime de Marseille reconfigured moles J3 and J2 in order to build its new international passenger sea terminal (Corsica and Maghreb).
The Major terminal was designed as a versatile structure, able to accommodate all types of flows, international (Algeria and Tunisia) and national (Corsica), even cruises. It should nevertheless welcome international traffic as a priority. On the basis of the 2005 traffic, the potential is believed to be more than 1 million travellers per year. The terminal is intended for foot passengers, representing 20% of international traffic. Those travelling with their car can take the dedicated ship access lanes in the Port.
With this new terminal the Grand Port Maritime de Marseille (GPMM) has a high-performance tool enabling it to welcome over 2 million passengers per year.
