Elizabeth Terminal works complete
From Port of Jersey
19th October 2018
The creation of graffiti wall art, depicting some of the Island’s most distinctive icons marks the final element to the recent £350k enhancement works at the Elizabeth Terminal, St Helier Harbour.
The works programme, which was completed in August has seen the installation of new flooring, ceilings and lighting in areas of the terminal building together with upholstery of seats and some redecoration. The works also included new signage, passenger information screens and the reconfiguration of internal walls, which has improved the overall flow of departing passengers through central security.
The graffiti artwork on the west berth foot passenger corridor was undertaken by local creative agency, Midnight and has seen the creation of wall art designs depicting the following senses – ‘Feel’, ‘Taste’, ‘See’ and ‘Explore’, depicted by well-known icons associated with Jersey such as potatoes, cows, the sea, beaches and heritage.
Part of the design work has also seen the creation of a quirky Jersey inspired ‘Welcome’ sign in the baggage reclaim area.
The catering offering at the Elizabeth Terminal has also been extended and now offers a greater range of hot and cold dishes. The kiosk will remain until the opening of a new eatery in spring 2019, which will see the creation of a restaurant and bar facility. This will be operated by catering company, Casual Dining Group, which currently operates a number of restaurants in UK airports. The new eatery will focus on delivering an all-day offering, featuring high-quality food and refreshments and work is due to commence shortly on its development.
The former Minister for Home Affairs, Senator Kristina Moore, who, earlier this had expressed her concerns over the poor state of the terminal, made a return visit on Wednesday 17 October 2018 to view the work that has taken place, accompanied by members of the Economic affair Scrutiny panel.
