During 1995, the construction phase of the project was started by the Ministry of Environment and co-financed by National Resources and the second Community Support Framework.
During 1999, the first phase was completed with a budget of approximately € 17.5 million and the new port was launched. The 2nd stage took place between 2000-2002. During this period, warehouses, toilets, electric lighting and architectural configuration of the island surface in the Schengen area were completed.
This was followed by the 3rd stage from 2006 to 2010 in which works were carried out for the passenger-commercial part of the port, east of the bridge with facilities for the service of passengers and ships and the improvement of the road network to the junction of the Ring Road. The last stage will cost about € 20.5 million.
